1.A high specification VCA, Voltage Controlled Amplifier, is utilized in the Crossfader system. This minimizes noise and wear from the mechanical parts of the Crossfader. Additionally, the Crossfader "Curve" can be easily adjusted on the front panel for change in Mixing styles. At one extreme is the long running mix and at the other is the Scratch or Cut mix.

2.Each of the input channels will accept one stereo phono and two stereo line sources, these are instanly switchable giving a massive twelve input capability. Each input channel has a gain control for the setting of input levels. A level display, balance control and three band EQ are also provided on each channel. The separate Mic input section has its own EQ.

3.One stereo input of each channel can be connected via the top panel for quick and easy access. This is particularly useful for "visiting" DAT players,etc.

4.The stereo Insertion ports are provided on the front panel. These allow for the easy connection of outboard effects such as VESTAX DCR1200PRO Frequency Separator, Compressor and Gate machines. And the stereo Master loop is provided on the top panel also. This allows for total sound control with Graphic EQ or Reverberator, etc.

5.The PMC-55 has the most comprehensive output lineup as well. No less than two separate Masters(balanced and unbalanced), one DJ Booth Monitor, one stereo Cue and a Headphones Monitor makes this mixer the most versatile "MIXER'S MIXER" available today.
