    Does anyone know of a 1HE 19" rack mixer that has the same connectivity as the Behringer UB-802? I use it for personal monitoring. The signals it should handle are:

    • * 2 x balanced line - in for monitor mix and direct guitar amp both in stereo (not necessarily XLR, TRS is good)
      * 1-2 x mic + phantom for direct microphone
      * stereo balanced out (feeds my IEM)

    Numark and Alesis have a model that does this (almost) but they are not what you'd call a leap ahead from the UB-802. I'd like it to be just a tad better than the Behringer, which isn't too bad for what I do. The budget is around EUR 300,00.

    Why haven't you considered the Mackie 1202VLZ? Definitely better build quality than the other brands you've mentioned. Very flexible connectivity.
    And in your price range, I would think (in the States these go used for about $200). Something to think about, these are considered by many in the live sound biz to be the "Swiss Army Knife" for submixing...

    OK Moonbaby, let me rephrase the question:

    Is there a 1HE 19"rack mixer with the same quality and connectivity as the Mackie 1202VLZ?

    Ashly Audio LX308B. Single-space, 2 mic ins, plenty of line ins. Not cheap, but very good quality and you can find Ashly stuff on e-Bay at bargain prices. BTW, I use one of my 1202VLZ's in a single-space rack drawer that easily pulls out so that I can make quick tweaks. Just a thought...

    I was thinking about such a drawer, but the Behringer is cheaper than such a drawer. I'd have to buy angled plugs as well, so I think it would be wiser to have a 1HE unit and be done with it. The Ashley doesn't even look bad.
