"Amazing for under a grand?"

The WZ3 16:2 DX is made by Allen & Heath. It has 4 band EQ’s and features a dual mixing mode. There are some effects built into it as well. There are a total of 32 effects on this mixer which was a huge surprise to me when I had the chance to mix with it at a local club and when I found out the price of it being under a grand I was amazed. I have used many mixers that have no effects and have about the same features as this mixer does for twice that price.


There are 16 channels with this mixer and it has 19x100 mm faders. There is no talkback features but it can be rack mounted if the user wants it to be. It is only about 19 inches wide and 19 inches deep. It is lightweight and pretty portable if you needed to take it somewhere.


The sweep able EQ bands (4) are for hi and low frequencies, they are on all 16 channels and they work really well. You can even set it up to use a foot pedal to trigger the effects on the mixer. This mixer is actually pretty stylish too, it has a slimmer build to it than most of Allen and Heaths other mixers do. It is built tough though and after using it for hours on end I do not see where it could ever have any issues.


There are phantom power switches and even signal indicators on this mixer and that is something that most other mixers in this price range do not have. For the price, you will not find many mixers that have this good of an EQ and effects on it for fewer than 1000 dollars. This mixer is a must have, I wouldn’t choose any mixer over this one that cost under 1000 bucks.
