Old Production Takes From an Old Guy

CTW WFX Coverage: Elite Core

Tucked away at the back of the exhibit hall was a little booth for a company called Elite Core. They’ve been making snakes and stage boxes for a while, and they’ve moved into personal mixers. Is it better sounding and more feature packed than the Aviom? Check out the video…

    Did you happen to figure out what digital protocol they are using to transmit? Cobranet, Ethersound, REAC or most likely their own proprietary format?

    Mark,
    As far as I know, it's proprietary.

    Nice interview. Not really sure I see a point in the signal lights for each channel. If you want to hear it, you turn it up. If you don't, you turn it down.

    Also, I went to their site and there is no About page. It's a pretty plain site. While I noticed they have a FB page, that shouldn't be their primary exposure. For what they have as far as price point and wanting to see to churches, they've got to make some site changes.

    Seems like they have a good product that could do well.

    I'm curious what the digital input options are.

    Hey guys… Just my $0.02 but I would tread VERY carefully here. The Elite Core stuff is made by the same guys as OSP – think the cheapest level gear (Behringer) you can buy, reverse engineered into a knock off that's even cheaper. Google OSP audio. They couldn't release this line under OSP or it would have the same reputation. Hence Elite Core, a lite about us section, vanilla website, etc. At least it seems from reports like this stuff sounds good. OSP is cheap junk – its too soon to know what Elite Core's reputation will be. Again, tread carefully. It seems too good to be true to me.

    Erik,
    So far, none.

    Kenny,
    I'm not familiar with OSP, but I was told while at the booth that the PM-16 and input module are built in Arkansas. But it's always good to check them out.

    The Elite Core PM-16 system was engineered by a serious team of engineers in Pennsylvania. The company is called Pivitec and they are industry veterans who were instrumental in the origins Aviom. They are manufacturing the units in a factory in McKinney, Texas. When I listened to the system at WFX, I can assure you that they sound awesome. There is not any reverse engineering here. In fact, it's like they took every complaint anyone ever had with Aviom and addressed them all. Keep you eyes on these guys. USA designed and built. I like it.

    Kenny – you're right. "OSP Audio Group will become ELITE CORE AUDIO on January 1, 2012. Many OSP items will be discontinued." Check the website. I've never heard of OSP (probably because I'm not from the states), but I'd tread carefully…
