PS Engineering, Inc., a world leader in general aviation audio systems, has taken our 18 years of experience and have evolved it into an audio panel that answers our customers most often asked for enhancements. This all new audio panel has been designated as the PMA8000. 

Building on the strengths of a proven design, yet with  enhancements to utility, cosmetics, and feature set, the PMA8000 sets a new level of price/performance. The PMA8000 is an audio selector panel for two VHF coms (including our split mode), a dedicated cellular telephone interface, a 6-place IntelliVox® stereo intercom with dual independent music inputs, and an internal marker beacon receiver with 3-light indicator.

This new audio panel is the direct result of customer demand. Pilots want the performance and benefits afforded by our very popular PMA7000-series, but the time and expense for an upgrade can be daunting.  So PS Engineering, Inc. designed the PMA8000 to be a true plug-and-play replacement for the GARMIN GMA340.

Having a cosmetic look that blends-in with a GARMIN stack, the integrated bezel and tactile push-button control will place it right at home with these very popular communications and navigation systems. Our patented IntelliVox® automatic intercom squelch system eliminates all of the traditional knobs or push buttons. Using digital processing, the system determines if the microphone is picking up voice, or aircraft noise. It opens instantly when voice is detected. This makes conversations seamless, even in a noisy aircraft.

When paired with the PS Engineering IFE system, such as the PAV80, the dual independent music inputs allow the passengers to watch a DVD and listen to the soundtrack, while the crew listens to the AM/FM radio, even while maintaining intercom contact.  PS Engineering's "SoftMute™" automatically cuts out the music when there is a radio call, and then smoothly restores the music level.

Through the use of a front panel control, the pilot can select our popular Karaoke mode, allowing the music to play continuously without constant interruptions, allowing the pilot to place the music in the background while having the radios in the foreground.

The full duplex TEL mode in the PMA8000 allows the pilot to access a hands free cellular telephone, where appropriate, through the audio panel and headset. Various front panel intercom configurations allow anyone in the aircraft to be placed on the cell phone, while the crew also remains connected to the communications radios.

Perhaps the most unique feature of the PMA8000 is its ability to serve as a remote control head for PS Engineering's future In-Flight Entertainment systems.  An optional continuous loop recorder, capable of storing 16 messages, or up to a minute of incoming radio traffic, is also available.
