What makes this different from the Zephyr ZMX862?
This mixer has two extra channels compared to the Zephyr ZMX862. It also comes with a 24-bit digital effects processor with 16 variations of 16 professional effects designed by Alesis. You can choose from room and space delays, small and large room acoustics, plate and spring reverbs as well as flangers, chorus effects and more. This gives you a professional sounding mix without having to build a full mixing studio into your house, ultimately saving you money.

What can I plug into this mixer?
This mixer comes with a variety of connections for you to plug your musical devices and microphones into. You can plug dynamic, condenser, and wireless microphones into the first two channels, as well has having two stereo channel inputs for keyboards, drum machines and other instruments. You can also easily plug in your MP3 player, CD player, or audio from a DVD player into the CD/tape inputs, as well as having two AUX outputs that can be used to send audio from your mixer to a digital effects unit, stage monitor or any number of sources.

What does phantom power do?
Phantom power is DC electric power transmitted through microphone cables to operate microphones that contain active electronic circuitry. This is so you can use more sensitive microphones, such as condenser microphones, with your mixer and enjoy the best quality sound.

What does "high headroom" mean?
If a mixer has higher headroom, this means you have less distortion when it comes to playing your music through the mixer. This, ultimately, gives you a far better sound that those with a low headroom which will distort the sound output more.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect midi sized mixer with Fx and dual outputs Bought this as a last minute emergency as I was required to provide both front-of-house and stage monitor sound for a number of bands at a small festival. Thanks to Stafford store for being helpful and having stock! This is a fantastic desk for the price, providing not only very good sound, but the ability to have a different mix sent to main and aux outputs - exactly what I needed for the band. It's also great for Karaoke use because there's a good selection of FX included. I have only used it for this one event so far, but the feedback from the bands was very favourable - the backing singer and drummer both commented it was the best stage monitor sound they have ever worked with! The only slight negative for me is the power supply is outside the unit and is a chunky wall plug which blocks up two sockets, would have been better if it were an IEC or figure 8 socket on the unit. There doesn't appear to be any specific case available for this, which I would like because I definitely want to look after it!

This is capable of running a 1000w pa system , the watts pass through the amp and not the mixer.
