Altec Lansing Professional's new 1662A mixer offers six mic/line inputs that feature a switchable -20dB pad and +48-volt phantom power. Separate TRS inserts allow users to patch accessory signal processing gear. Each mix channel has up to 60dB input gain, separate bass and treble controls, level adjustment and an output level-assign switch to send any channel to either or both outputs (A, B or A+B). A full 11-segment LED array indicates stereo output level.
Separate stereo sum inputs are provided for DVD, CD and tape players. Euroblock connectors are used for mic/line inputs and main outputs.
According to Gary Jones, regional sales manager for Altec Lansing Professional, the 1662A “can be easily configured as either a stereo mixer or two mono mixers. The input tone controls allow each input to be manipulated independent of the house EQ.”
