Looking for a battery-powered PA that you can take anywhere? The aptly named Alto Professional Busker offers up to 24 hours of battery life and plenty of versatility for any mobile application. This portable speaker could revolutionize your travel setup!
Alto Professional Busker
Designed for performing on the go, the new Busker from Alto Professional is a portable, rechargeable battery-powered speaker with a built-in mixer. With its compact size and low weight of just 5.4 kg, it’s easy to carry to your next busking session, outdoor event, or impromptu gig. You can use the box in vertical or horizontal orientation, or mount it on a stand using the built-in pole flange.
With a 6.5” woofer and 1” tweeter powered by a 200-watt (peak) amplifier, the Alto Busker delivers a frequency response of 60 Hz to 20 kHz and a maximum sound pressure level of 106 dB. If you prioritize battery life over volume, there’s a 50-watt (peak) “Eco Mode” that increases battery life from 20 to up to 24 hours. The built-in lithium-ion battery is charged via USB. Alternatively, the Busker can run on standard mains voltage (100-240 VAC).
The built-in mixer on the back offers two XLR-1/4” combo inputs for microphones, instruments, or line-level sources. These channels also have access to the built-in Alesis effect processor, with independent send controls for each channel. Furthermore, an 1/8” stereo input allows you to connect a media player or another stereo source. Moreover, you can stream music wirelessly from your device over Bluetooth. Line outputs are available in XLR and RCA formats. What’s more, you can link two Buskers over Bluetooth for stereo playback. There’s even a free iOS/Android app for remote configuration.
That’s certainly an impressive array of features in a lightweight box that you can take anywhere. Besides (obviously) busking, the Busker seems perfectly suited as a PA for events, presentations, fitness, or any other mobile application.
