QX Small Format Live Sound - Professional Audio and Television
Now in its 3rd generation, the legendary MixWizard range builds on its market leading status by adding a new
mic preamp design and advanced grounding scheme, which both further enhance sonic quality. Other improvements
include individual phantom power switches, channel signal indicators, lamp socket and backup supply capability.
Internal configuration options for channel aux sends and direct output are now on pluggable jumpers for user
convenience, and the mixer is presented in a stylish new package.
