    Allen & Heath ZED 16FX reviews

    ZED-16FX 16-Channel Recording and Live Sound Mixer with FX & USB is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 5.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Rugged compact mixer! We are using the ZED-16FX as replacements for the Mackie 1642 series of mixers in a mobile DJ/Karaoke enviroment. We basically got tired of ribbon cable problems on the Mackies, and decided to try something new. The unit feels solid out of the box, installed easily, and powered up without a glitch. Only time will tell how rugged they actually are. but at this point I am extremely happy with this mixer.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Sound from a Solid Mixer Upgraded from a Yamaha. I noticed how quiet the preamps immediately. he effects also sound great.We plat 4-6 times a week and needed something reliable. Im very happy about the purchase.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful British - Warm and Musical sound Allen and Heath Mixer sounds so much better than other mixers. They sound warm and musical / natural sounding. There are no unnecessary hyped up highs and upper miss. Sounds more natural and easy to listen to compared to most mixers that get tiring and fatiguing after a while.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from ZED with USB1.1 This ZED is equipped with USB1.1 which is too slow for recording with new computers running USB2 and/or USB3. However, I like the Duo preamp on the Mic channels. I can distinguish different sound quality from different microphones and XLR cables. If digital recording is your prime consideration, I would recommend you to go for other options.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Solid, quiet, versatile compact mixer Rock solid construction, Good effects for he price range and good feature of sending effects through stage monitors. I run it from the stage on a rolling stand with JBL PRX 700 15's and subs. Easy set up with powered speakers and great sound and EQ.
