The 16 channel Mackie 1604VLZ4 features the proven performance of the flagship Onyx mic preamps.
The VLZ4 design goal was simple: every VLZ4 mixer must have the highest headroom and lowest noise possible. Plus it truly is "Built-Like-A-Tank" with a rugged solid steel chasis and high contrast controls for ultimate tactile control. And with features like instrument level inputs, phantom power and level metering, the 1202VLZ4 offers a true step up performance and durability that's ideal for your professional application.
Each generation of VLZ mixers benefits from a reinvestment in performance, all without raising prices. By continuing to ignore the “race to the bottom,” VLZ4 benefits from generations of performance improvements like transparent EQ, class-leading negative summing bus architecture and custom-designed op-amps to ensure signal integrity from every input to every output. The result is a mixer that is at the peak of performance and is the obvious go-to compact analog mixer for engineers who demand professional results.
The performance of Mackie’s Onyx mic preamps is more than proven. Just check all the amazing reviews and customer testimonials. Their boutique quality sound and unmatched performance rival any high-priced, boutique preamp on the market. Adding these flagship preamps to the VLZ4 Series compact mixers underlines Mackie's commitment to continually improving the performance of the VLZ line with each generation.
