    I work for a university setting up small and large events around campus. This little mixer's versatility is so astounding, we now have ten of them. Shure has incorporated Mic and Line level inputs for every channel making it easier to plug in units like sound from a laptop or CD player without needing a direct box. Having a Mic/Line level out allows me to adapt it to any existing system on campus without re-inventing the wheel. This is an all in one solution that I hope Shure will never stop manufacturing. We use these little mixers every day.

    Works OK for the price

    I use this mixer for videoing conference meetings and depositions. It would be nice to have high impedance unbalanced mic output to drive cameras such as the Canon GL2.

      This shure mic mixer is used in a large church with a choir. It replaces the same make and model that the church has used for years and which was dropped one too many times!

        Comments about Shure SCM268 4-Channel Microphone Mixer:

        This unit sits on our demonstration desk at large trade shows, and controls the volume / mixing of 3 balanced sources (wireless microphones / headsets) and one background music source. Very discrete, and avoids anyone having access to equalizer or amplification settings, all that other gear is hidden away. We use it also for video recordings.

When I saw an associate was using this mixer, I knew I had to have one. It all the functionality without all the complication. A great value!
