Mackie 1604 VLZ3 16 Channel Compact Mixer

A Legend in the industry, the Mackie 1604 VLZ3 16 Channel Compact Mixer is a favorite mixer for professionals around the world for its vastly superior sound, features, and product quality. With 16 line inputs as well as 16 mic inputs with Mackie's amazing mic pre-amps built in to every channel, there is plenty of room to hook up all of your input sources.

Every mic input comes with Mackie's XDR2 pre-amp technology offering ultra-low noise with a THD just under 0.0007% as well as up to 22 decibels of sound input with zero coloration. The 1604 was built to have the best sound quality so it comes as a given that each channel input comes with the highest headroom they could put into such a compact and powerful machine.

On every channel of the 1604 VLZ3 there are 4 auxiliary sends, level and pan control, and indication LED's. Each channel has heavy duty 60mm slide faders as well as one of the most advanced 3-band equalizers built for a mixer. Mackie's Active EQ is on the 1604 and it features individual frequency's for the lows (80 Hz), the highs (12 kHz), and the mids get special treatment with a 2 octave sweepable system letting them range from 100 Hz to 8 kHz. You will also find great output options from the 1604 including XLR balanced and TRS unbalanced/balanced outputs, 4 stereo auxiliary returns, 8 direct out ports, and 4 group/bus outputs. Of course it wouldn't be a true Mackie mixer without the ultimate in rugged design. With a steel reinforced chassis, horizontally mounted plexiglass PC boards, and an impact transfer system that won't damage the circuit board in the event of a fall.
