Mackie DFX 12Published on 08/02/04 at 15:00
Guitar Center, $249.00, had it about a year. Bought it to work with other equipment I bought from an expired band.

I like everything about this unit. Easy to use, built with quality materials, and has a user manual in plain English for the novice user. Everything is labeled clearly and logically. I have no complaints about this unit whatsoever. Mackie even included humorous notes in the manual for those that take the time to read it. Mute buttton on each channel to easily cut off the channel when necessary.

The industry as a whole calls these a 12 channel unit when in fact the stereo outputs which should be a single channel are counted as two. Nothing wrong with this unit as far as I'm concerned.

This unit is made of a durable plastic, as most units are. The quality of materials is excellent, the connections are clean, the unit is very quiet.

I was advised that if I wanted good sound in a quality unit with minimal noise and the most value for my money, I should leave the Behringer's and Yamaha's and buy Mackie. This has been reinforced by friends who run soundboards for bands. For the cost, it can't be beat.

Small-console CHRE not offering a low price for many services done everything nice.
-I do not know if the rack is bte, others will tell peuttre?
-It provides for 12 channels but in fact possde 4-way mono + 4 Stereo (4 +4 * 2 = 12 o)
-2 Auxiliary with the possibility to route the effect.
A 5-qualiseur slices, which may seem little but that of the trs MRIT well.
A 32-bit effects 16 effects good enough for this type of tablounette.

UTILIZATION

Config could not be more simple, a boy of 5 years can be used.
-All functions are accessible quickly and easily, trs good visual and intuitive.
-A manual? What ..? To the extent that there is need in this case it will be very well...…

-All functions are accessible quickly and easily, trs good visual and intuitive.
-A manual? What ..? To the extent that there is need in this case it will be very well explained.

SOUNDS

-Breath, so hlas .. Why does it get the gain that level of gentlemen at Mackie?
I have a possd CFX12, THE FIRST, and it was not blowing as much .. My claviriste possde him CFX12-2 and also blows up bcp and temperatures requiring high gain. . Too high!
Cel said .. Some perspective .. A place to choose between this small console and 255 euros in the equivalent rate in Berhinger p .. There's another picture looks like!
-The qualizer is excellent and is not a gimmick like that sometimes found.

OVERALL OPINION

-Uses weeks since qques live.
-Extremely simple to use, small features many fun and useful, a first-rate management, but a little too out of breath, the fault of lazy pramps?
-Report qualitprix simply excellent.
-For the use I make a (management of my return 2.1) it is perfect.
If you have a small benefits. with an average sound look no further!

Small non-rack mount console. 12 channels with 6 XLR

XLR outputs on the base but very adequate.



UTILIZATION

It is the small console that I take to weddings I have no DJ mixer, I use the aux for my headphones and mix the costs, it works very well.

the pots are very solid on my Neutrik MODEL 2003 (output)

Nothing to do with the new models Tapco quality level.

I have no fader spitting or scratching. Runs about 20 to 25 dates a year, but happiness!

SOUNDS

The sound is good. Yes it blows and the effects are average.

OVERALL OPINION

Very solid outings over 150 since 2003. The internal power supply is a +.

It is not rack is bad!

It lacks an equalizer "medium rather" on the tracks, too bad.

Otherwise the finish is very good, I have no problems with in 7 years.

Would recommend in the first version. J'hsiterais for Tapco is less well done.

In ocas yes why not! A good choice for about 150
