Trident Audio Series 78 32 Ch Analogue Console with LED Meter Bridge
A scaled down version of the Trident 88 in several standard formats, this new desk breaks the price/quality barrier by rationalising format and construction; for example, input modules are in blocks of four rather than individual. In line (monitor and main fader doubling inputs on each channel) with four band eq, filters and comprehensive auxiliary and routing, the 78 is a compact solution where no-compromise audio quality is required and a budget price.

The Trident Audio Series 78 is a cost-effective mixing console tailored for engineers, studio owners, educational facilities, houses of worship, and live sound applications.
The 78’s are Split/lnline consoles with individual channels in 4-way panels. Using an 8 subgroup configuration and incorporating 6 Aux sends, its routing options are vast and simple to use. Connections are fast and easy with DB-25’s throughout the board and XLR’s for speaker and main outputs.
With the 80B EQ at its core, including selectable channel inserts and discrete preamps driving the inputs, the Series 78 consoles offer a wide array of summing and mixing options. The uncompromised sonic quality and compact footprint of the 78’s are able to meet any demand.
Features found throughout the Trident Audio Series 78 make for a straightforward and powerful package, but paramount to all else is The Sound. Among the many styles, preferences and methods of recording exists the expectation that a board must have the ability to be pushed hard and sound big. This is a hallmark of the Trident Audio series 80 consoles and the 78 carries that tradition forward.
Bottom line: The Trident Audio Series 78 was created with all of this in mind so that you can use it to make great sounding tracks.
