Primarily designed for permanent installation, the new 4-channel UREI 1603 and 7-channel 1605 (pictured) club mixers each offer total integration with house sound systems, providing a fully featured control center for clubs and performing DJs.
The two models also feature as a rotatable connector panel so that connections may be made to the rear or underside of the mixer (for desktop or flush-mount). An external mute interface can be triggered by a fire alarm, for example, to mute all music channels, leaving only the announcement/safety mic channel open for public address.
A comprehensive monitoring system allows not only monitoring of cue channels and the mix output, but also the aux send and return signals. The mixers sport spilt, cue and main mix, and the unique headphone flip function, as well as EQ on the headphone output.
Each channel has connections for a microphone (XLR), deck (RIAA on RCA phono) and line-level (RCA phono) sockets, with the RIAA inputs switchable to be line-level, giving the 1605 a total of seven mic and 14 line-level input connections. No inputs need be used for an aux return as the aux (FX) output has its own return input on the top panel. Outputs include balanced XLR and unbalanced RCA connectors for both booth and master outputs, as well as 1/4-inch jack and 3.5mm mini-jack headphone connections.
The suggested U.S. list price on the UREI 1603 is set at $999.99, with the 1605 retailing for $1,499.99. For more information on the new club mixers, visit www.ureidj.com. For more new sound reinforcement products, visit mixonline.com/livesound/products/.
