A little gem for a price worth credible!

03.02.2017
Over time, I had accumulated various audio hardware, and as it tired me of having to spend my time plugging and unplugging cables to connect any audio hardware to monitoring speakers and / or an audio interface, I had to find A sort of "audio socket", so that I can plug more or less permanently my material.

The purchase of a mixing console was therefore the logical choice. But since I already had two mic preamps (a Behringer MIC-200, not bad, and a M-Audio DMP3, brilliant), it was not necessary that the console has pre-amps competition (Avalon or Focusrite) And in any case my budget was limited.

Let me tell you why the Allen & Heath ZED-6 was (in my opinion) probably the best choice for less than 100 euros:

+ Integrated power supply with a three-prong grounding plug, not a power supply (transformer) that clogs the power strips,

+ Quality on / off switch on the back of the console, while in this price range, and even on more expensive models, it is often forgotten by the manufacturer,

+ A headphone jack that has its own volume control knob, independent of the fader that controls the volume of the Main Out,

+ A Neutrik plugged connector (at least for both XLR inputs and the two Main Out XLR outputs, it is marked above),

+ A "Main Out" in the form of two male XLR, not two jacks as is too often the case in this price range,

+ A PFL (Pre-Fade Listen) button under each slice of the console, to isolate one or more channels by sending them to the headphones only, to facilitate adjusting the input gain,

+ A sturdy metal construction, and thick plastic parts that do not "cheap" at all,

+ Quality knobs and a zipper that is not less, it does not make "toy" in the least,

+ No breath, even listening to the headphones (three headphones tested, two Superlux and an Audio-Technica), and I tested all the inputs with microphones, line level sources, and tried various settings, The sound is ultra clean, it's crazy for this price.

My goal being to monitor, the fact that the equalizations are only on two bands has posed me no problem, I will leave them in neutral position. But I have tested them, however, and they are effective, one hears well the difference with respect to the neutral sound.

Similarly, I tested by acquaintance micro preamps (these famous "GSPre" whose manufacturer makes a portrait rather complimentary, you say, it is normal, it is the manufacturer ...), with And a Shure, as well as a Rode: I found the sound much better than the Behringer MIC-200, but compared to the M-Audio DMP3, the sound turned out to be less Maybe a bit more "musical", less "flat" we will say. The only measuring devices used during the tests were my ears, so there is always some subjectivity ...

Now a few negative points, but then very, very light:

- The LED that indicates that the console is powered is blue (arggg), and gladly blinding, it will be necessary to put a piece of scotch well opaque on it very quickly, otherwise ...

- The pano knobs have a fluorescent orange top, Stabilo way, but why, why this choice (arggg derechef)?

- From one knob to another, we notice that the resistance to the fingers is not uniform, some are harder than others, which could annoy some (not me in this case, but hey, It is good to know),

- The red that you see on the sides of the console is not part of the gray and hard plastic that forms the chassis around the metal part of the top and the back: these are actually two thin sheets of which the material is not (Possibly 100% plastic, or paper with a coating), which are superimposed on the chassis. It is decorative a little "cheap", and useless in my humble opinion.

I had always heard about the quality of Allen & Heath products, and I must say with the ZED-6 that this reputation seems to me deserved. For less than a hundred euros, you have a product that favors quality components, borrowed for some from far more expensive model models, instead of offering more entries and more versatility as at other manufacturers, but Too often to the detriment of sound quality and / or quality of manufacture.

The product is brand new, we will see if it resists the test of time, but already, I recommend this article to the report price-value surprising.

Have a xone 42 and wanted a spare mixer.
Important for me as a DJ was the pre-listening function, light weight and small dimensions, as well as 2 micro connections.
Does exactly what it is supposed to do. Without problems.
The potis are not as high as xone, but for the price absolutely OK! It would be desirable if the inputs or outputs were not placed upwards, but rather to the rear.
And a chinch input instead of the 6.3 jack would save adapters.
Conclusion:
As a backup mixer in the price performance ratio unbeatable!

At Allen & Heath bothers me that in principle synonymous with menem Xone 42 no mono out as a collected signal is possible. As a DJ for gigs with smaller rooms but mandatory, since otherwise each side is differently sonicated. You must first switch a converter.
Can other mixers but already!
