The Mackie 1642VLZ4 mixer continues the VLZ Series' trend for rock-solid construction, while taking sound quality to a new level. Along with an amazingly wide dynamic range, incredible 60dB gain range on the Onyx microphone preamplifiers, and ultra-low-noise performance the 1642VLZ4 also boasts better-than-ever RF rejection for prime performance in broadcast situations. Add to all these features some high-resolution meters, generous I/O, and sealed rotary controls that keep out the dirt, the Mackie 1642VLZ4 is another great mixer from Mackie.
The Mackie 1642VLZ4 contains ten of Mackie's premium-quality Onyx mic preamps for natural, transparent sound. The first eight mic/line channels are equipped with 3-band EQ with sweepable mids (non-sweepable on the last four channels). Signal routing is easy and flexible. On top of all that, the Mackie 1642VLZ4 is built Mackie-tough - this mixer will perform even in the most harrowing situations.
The 1642VLZ4 boasts sealed rotary controls that resist grime, dust, and anything else that may spill onto your mixer. It's not designed to be fully waterproof, but it's an extra level of protection you'll be glad of when running live sound in a hectic environment.
VLZ stands for 'very low noise', and that's just part of the appeal of the Mackie 1642VLZ4 mixer. In all you've got a 128.5dB dynamic range, making it easy to achieve full, punchy mixes. The Onyx mic preamps have a 60dB gain range, so you can get the best out of virtually any microphone. Also, the 1642VLZ4's line inputs handle +22 dBu signal levels, so you can connect high-output sound sources without worrying about distorting your inputs.
