    Im on the look out for a mixer for my home based project studio.Im having a hard time picking one out.I was gonna get one from the VLZ PRO series but I keep reading reviews about poor build quality ie defective components.Im looking for some thing that allows me to have 2 pairs of monitors,mabey a 4 bus?Im not too sure,is there any brands or models you can suggest?Obviously I want the best quality possible Im willing to spend 600-800 I'll go higher but no more than a G.oh yeah thats cdn.

    peace

    Hi,
    I don't agree with the advice you got re build quality of the Mackie mixers. I have been using several 1202VLZPro in the field for the last 5 years and have never had a problem. The build quality is very good. There are better mic pres out there, of course, but at a much higher price.

    I assume from your post you are located in Canada (me too). Are you considering a good used mixer? I have a Sony 8 bus that is very high quality and about the same size as a Mackie 1604. The price is well within your budget.

    I am a new member here but have 130+ perfect EBay and several hundred posts on other forums. Let me know if you are interested or would like to see some pics.

    Take care,
    Ron

    mackie mixers

    I agree that the mackies are great mixers. I've been using my cr vlz 1604 and it is very quiet with plenty of options. I am selling mine because I am going for a "all in one" studio since I am married and my studio is now a third bedroom. :cry: Thats what happens when you get old and have bills... If your interested, email me at eight_left_turns@yahoo.com.
