In what it says is an effort to offer value and quality to pilots, PS Engineering on Nov. 4 announced an updated version of the company’s original PMA6000 audio panel.
The new PMA6000B is smaller and lighter than the original and includes a built-in four-place intercom.
“We have seen a continuing need for a low-cost, basic audio panel particularly in the light sport marketplace. With the PMA6000B, we’ve been able to cut costs, improve reliability and utility, and offer full performance in an entry-level audio panel, while maintaining FAA certification,” said company founder Mark Scheuer.
Even though PS Engineering says the unit is the least expensive on the market, it still offers a variety of features, including a cockpit speaker amplifier, two music inputs with Softmute, and a split mode that allows com radios 1 and 2 to be on two different frequencies.
PS Engineering’s PMA6000B retails for $1,195 with built-in marker beacon receivers, and $1,095 without. It’s available from dealers now.
