merlin - Elan Audio
MERLIN
6 INPUT BROADCAST AUDIO MIXER
The original concept for the Merlin was to create a Small, Portable Audio Mixer suitable for Media Training in
Schools and other Educational Institutions. The design criteria were:
•
Must Look and Operate like a dedicated Broadcast On-Air Mixer
•
Have Full Broadcast Performance
•
Modest Price
•
Be Versatile, Reliable, Tough and
•
Not Require Permanent Installation
The resulting design, the Merlin Mixer is much more than a media training mixer; it is a highly practical and
versatile piece of Professional Broadcast Equipment. Technical performance of the Merlin is flawless, equal to
other Elan Audio Professional On-Air Mixers in areas such as low distortion, flat frequency response, low noise
and generous overload margins. Making it not only sound good, but also easy and forgiving to operate.
Operational features of the Merlin closely resemble those of other Elan and most other Professional Audio
Mixers making it not only the ideal unit for Media Training, but also for Broadcast and Production
applications.
