Ledgendary name and build quality for a bargain price
Magnatron 26.11.2015
This is a great mixer, designed for live work and aimed directly at the working band.
It has enough channel inputs to handle a four or five piece band, including mic-ing up the drums and is simple enough to use on the fly if you don't have a dedicated sound engineer (our drummer has the desk next to him at gigs). The build quality is very, very good at this price point - all of the knobs and sliders are mounted on the casing, not on the circut boards, which makes this a very robust piece of equipment. I've done over 100 gigs with this without a single problem.
Feature wise, I would have liked to be able to select phantom power to individual channels rather than all channels on or all off, but at this price I was happy to compromise and to be honest, it hasn't been as big an issue as I thought it would be.

If you want a well built, easy to use, inexpensive mixer for your band, buy one of these. They're great!


Sturdy and straightforward

I was looking for a small reasonably priced studio mixer but budget and space meant I had to compromise. This mixer, while not having direct outs, fulfilled my list of criteria in all other ways - number of channels, auxiliary flexibility and footprint. Allen and Heath's build quality was, of course, not in question.
I circumvented the direct out problem easily by employing a patchbay and insert leads - of course I can't use the channel eq except for monitoring/foldback (not an issue in DAW recording). The usb in out is useful although there is some latency. Generally, a great mixer for a very reasonable price.


Good Basic Mixer

Had this for a while now, and it's been trouble free and very capable. The EQ is good, and having four AUX sends is helpful. The only thing that I don't like about it is the price for the rack ears.

Excellent mélangeur analogique
Holodre Bruxelles 07.05.2021
Beaucoup de bonnes choses ont déjà été dite pour cet équipement,
Je suis ravis de la qualité sonore de ces pré amplis en classe A

Bonne sensibilité pour utiliser des microphones à faible niveau de sortie
Excellent rapport signal bruit

Rationnel et bien agencé, j'ai juste eu un souci au début pour activer les boutons affleurants, (+48V etc...)
il faut bien les enfoncer avec un outil adéquat , au début j'avais essayer avec une pointe de stylo à bille.
Sans succès, j'ai demander conseil au SAV de Thomann qui m'ont bien conseillés. "
- Il faut bien les enfoncer à fond jusqu'au moment ou vous entendez le "clic".
Pour cela utilisez soit un mini tournevis ou une pointe de Jack 3,5mm que je laisse avec la ZED-18
Ce modèle analogique a déjà beaucoup vécu et sa qualité inspire confiance.
La largeur de bande des pré amplis est impressionnante .
Bref une qualité de son propre et sans compromis à un prix abordable.
Pour son transport j'ai commandé le Thon Mixer Case A&H ZED-16FX / 18
(Flightcase pour A&H ZED-16FX / 18 )

Attention, pour ceux qui ont besoin d'effets intégrés ce n'est pas le mélangeur qu'il vous faut, il en est dépourvu!
Pour moi c'est parfait.

Voilà , donc si vous hésitez, faites vous plaisir!
