Very impressive little low cost mixer, it has superb mic amps and excellent cross-talk performance,
Suitable for live and recording.
This one comes with an external PSU for reduced noise and a Gator portable carry bag.

The updated compact mixers in Mackie's VLZ range may look the same as ever on the outside -- but inside lurk new, high-grade microphone pre-amps.
The SOS verdict
|Superb audio performance.|
|Unbeatable value for money.|
|The sonic quality of these mic pre-amps really does rival that of expensive esoteric designs, and further enhances the capabilities of these highly versatile compact mixers.|
