New Toy - Driverack VENU360

$799 (so probably about £10,000 over here!)
http://www.dbxpro.com/en-US/products/driverack-venu360

Purdy iPad/Android control:

Also from the blurb:

Features
INPUT PROCESSING
dbx Compression
AFS™ (Advanced Feedback Suppression)
31-Band Graphic EQ
12-Band Parametric EQ (with narrow notch capabilities)
Subharmonic Synthesis
Backline Delay
Noise Gate

OUTPUT PROCESSING
Crossover (supports full range up to mono 6-way systems)
12-Band AutoEQs (8 AutoEQ bands, 4 User bands)
dbx Compression
Automatic Gain Control
Subharmonic Synthesis
Noise Gate
Tower Delays (up to 1000ms per output)
8-Band Parametric EQs (used for speaker tunings)
dbx Limiting
Driver Alignment Delays

Note the autoEQ is now on the output

I imagine the biggest reason for getting this model would be the iPad/Android control. Well handy for setting up as you can be in the soundfield when making adjustments - no more having running over to the rack, changing setting and running back all whilst trying to remember what it sounded like on the previous setting!

Did the PA2 also have the tablet/phone connectivity?

Yes, but far fewer outputs.
Cool device.

Yes, this is a very cool piece! Just had a rep come and demo it yesterday. It's kind of funny, I'm in the midst of a TT build and had no intentions of landing on this forum this morning. I did a quick Google search for the "DriveRack VENU360" to see who has it listed so far (our competitors) and what do you know...BFM forum is on the first page! We just listed it yesterday. I can let you guys know as soon as its available. In fact, if anyone has any interest in DBX products, please let me know. I can hook you guys up! ;) This wasn't meant to be a solicitation, I just thought it was a coincidence that BFM forum is on the first page of Google for this item and we just listed it.

Anyway, this is our listing for the DBX Driverack VENU360

remember, google "tailors" your search experience.

since you've likely been visiting the bfm page, I'd say they would be more keen to put it at the top of the list.

You're absolutely correct, but Google only personalizes your SERPS if you are logged in to a Google account. I was surprised myself, but this result is consistent across all 3 of the machines that I tried in the office (whether logged in or not). BFM is not at the top, but is on the first page. Try it for yourself and let me know your results. Search KW "Driverack Venu360". Results are also location based, and for me, this thread is the 3rd result from the bottom.

want it! I've been waiting for some DSP with easy wireless control in this tier. There's some killer stuff from Funktion One and XTA but they're in the $3500-4500 range.

Update - got it, and just used it for it's first gig on Friday. I was just adding 2 subs to the venue's sound, but it was awesome to be able to tweak the EQ from the crowd in the middle of the party. So far, I recommend it. But I haven't given it a whirl with the full system yet. That will be on Halloween :)

I got the venue 360 when it first came out. Terrific unit. I also bought a audix tm1 mic. Eqing the system is so easy now and it comes out great. I always had a little trouble around 2k to 4k with the pa2 and the Dbx mic. No more.
