ART MX225 overview

  • 1Description

The MX225 from ART is a high-quality zone mixer with two stereo inputs and five stereo outputs. The two balanced XLR stereo inputs each get routed to all five zones. Every zone has balanced XLR stereo outputs. There are source 1 and 2 volume knobs on each of the 5 zones, with an LED audio level meter, and a button that sums the stereo signal to mono.

For an example of how the MX225 can be used, imagine you own a medium sized restaurant. You have an entrance area, a main dining room, a bar area, a kitchen, and an office. You want the same music playing in the entrance area and the dining room, but at different volumes (softer in the dining room, louder near the busy entrance). In the bar area you want a different style of music playing at a louder volume. The cooks in the kitchen like variety, so sometimes they want to hear the mellow dinning room music, and other times they like the more rocking bar music.

With the MX225 hooked into your sound system in the office area, you can control who hears what, and at what volume they are hearing it. If a customer asks you to turn down the music, you can easily turn down the music in their zone only. You plug the two different audio sources into the MX225, and connect the outputs to the amplifiers or powered speakers that are set up in the separate parts of the restaurant. The operation of the MX224 couldn't be easier. You simply turn up or turn down the volumes of source 1 & 2 in each zone.

Left and right balanced source 1 and 2 inputs, accepts stereo or mono signals
Source 1 and 2 input channels are internally routed to all five zone channels
Five zone channels each feature source 1 and 2 level controls and left and right balanced output XLR connectors
Stereo/mono selector on each zone sums left and right into Mono mode when engaged
Mono indicator LED on each zone channel indicates that mono has been selected
Five LED level metering (-25, -20, -15, -10, Clip) on each zone channel indicate signal activity for each zone
Source 1 and 2 indicator LEDs show you when signal is present in each source channel

    ART MX225 reviews

    MX225 - Zone Distribution Mixer is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 4.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Does what it says 10 xlr outputs ... 5 stereo zones. Just what I needed to run 4 pairs of powered speakers. Haven't seen anything else like it. And for the price nothing else came close. If multiple outputs and separate volume controls is important to you, rather then many inputs this is a great choice.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great little box Good speaker for the money, but has a low output before clip so this isn't the speaker if you want to throw a block party. But if you're giving a presentation, or have a small cafe or restaurant that needs music then these will do just fine. Insert a graphic or parametric EQ in the chain to really get the most out of them.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great zone mixer Bought this for an install and it works great! XLR connections save a lot of time over traditional euro-block connectors usually used on install pieces. Meters are very convenient and the ability to make any zone mono is a great feature. Overall very satisfied.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works Great and a great price too I use this to expand to multiple record deck outputs at my church, a video feed, and even a feed to one of our cameras. It really expands my matrix outs.
