Re: Allen & Heath MixWizard

I own this mixer and I love it- you can get it for less than $1300 if your
in with a shop-

Only issue I had was a subgroup indicator light which after 20 mins or so
would slowly start to glow- I returned and got another with same issue- no
response at ALL from AH support- I never heard it affect sound and just 
with it- but was discouraging to get such poor support= no support at all.

It is built like a tank tho- and I have been very happy with the aux which
1-4 are pre/post and 5-6 are pre/post-

I have been using it in a studio capacity- so I don't even take advantage 
some features which would shine in a live setup as you mention.
