Description

The Mackie 1604-VLZ PRO Mixer is a major upgrade for Mackie's already highly respected mixers! The 1604 improves upon its predecessor with XDR preamps that deliver even lower noise and higher headroom (0-60dB gain range, 130dB dynamic range, +22dBu line input handling, and distortion under .005%). They head up all 16 channels, which also feature high-headroom line inputs and channel inserts. Other features include a DC pulse transformer for RF rejection, 60mm long-wearing logarithmic-taper faders, 3-band channel EQ with sweepable mids, phantom power, solo switches, balanced inputs/outputs (all except inserts), 4 aux sends, 4 stereo aux returns, 8 direct outs. It's a flexible, powerful mixer that can serve equally well in PA rack or studio.

I see I'm not the only one who left the "XDR" sticker on his Mackie 1604-VLZ Pro... (admittedly, I finally did peel it off earlier this year). In all seriousness, very nice setup.

Thanks very much. I am ready to tear that sticker off every time I walk behind the mixer, but something keeps saying -still and soft, "not now". Maybe it's haunted, and tearing the sticker will open a poltergeist hole. I've got enough to do without having to research poltergeist-hole reversal, and I don't even own tennis balls to...
