- Clean sound. Ridiculously low THD.
- Balanced inputs and outputs are great. Eliminates buzz and noise.
- Great match with "Hercules DJ Control Instinct" (phono plugs feeding into the "Tape In").
- Great match with my Yamaha MSR100 powered speakers. Levels are well matched.
- Takes up minimal table real-estate. Got this because my trusty Mackie 1202 took up too much space for just a couple of channels.
- Don't try to plug in a 1/4"-to-XLR adapter directly into the outputs: surprisingly, they are too close together and will strain the plugs. To relieve the problem, get a couple of "Monoprice 104760 3-Feet Premier Series XLR Male to 1/4-Inch TRS Male". Then you can connect to any XLR balanced inputs.
- No pan or treble/bass controls on inputs 3/4. Dear Mackie: I would have happily paid $20 more for that.
- If you accidentally feed the outputs into an input that has 48V phantom power turned on (these things happen), the VU meter stops working.
Here's a comparison: a week earlier, I'd purchased a Behringer Xenyx 1002 for the same purpose: It's similar in configuration. I noticed immediately that there was NO consistency of gain amount when comparing that unit's first and second channels. They were completely different when testing with the same signal!! I could NEVER get the click quite loud enough no matter how I tried, and without the extra headroom needed to do so, the Behringer was quickly found to be useless. Also, for any sort of louder gain on the Behringer, it had a TON of white noise and distortion, which just simply CAN'T happen when the point of the unit will be in-ear monitor use. That huge amount of noise just competes with what you're trying to accomplish. This line of Mackie mixers are simply the only pro choice when it just has to work consistently perfect.
Also I love using a RCA-to-3.5mm cable with the Mackie to practice music off my iPhone. Loud and clear.
Don't waste time like I did, get a Mackie.
1) Audio from my desktop PC for video editing and simply listening to music
2) Audio from my AlienWare 17 R2 laptop which is my main DAW running Studio One 3 Pro
3) Audio from my iPad Pro when fooling with Notion, GarageBand and any other audio source
4) Ability to plugin my Taylor acoustic to play solo or along with any of the above
5) Ability for someone to listen to a finished mix on my studio headphones while I monitor the track through the Eris 5s at a low level so I know what they are hearing at any given point
And most of all I needed to eliminate the VERY bad RF interference I was getting from the Eris 5s, because while the sound is TRULY accurate given the price range, the RF shielding is pretty bad, due to the price range. But I got it 99% solved. Here's how:
· Connect the Eris 5s to the Mackie with cables such as Mogami 2549 XLR Male to 1/4" TRS Cable with Neutrik Gold Connectors - 6 Feet by ChromaLeaf. Speakers are done.
· Connect my desktop editing PC to a Creative Sound Blaster X-Fi HD USB Audio System with Phono Preamp, and from there connect that to the Mackie's Tape In inputs. IMPORTANT: I used cheap RCA cables and a cheap USB cable between the PC, Creative DAC and Mackie, and got horrible RF noise! I then tried, believe it or not, an AmazonBasics USB 2.0 Cable which are very well made, and a pair of Monster RCA cables I already had, and I get NO RF noise from the Eris 5s now. PC is done.
· In Channels 3 & 4 I run this Ugreen Gold Plated 3.5mm 1/8" TRS to 6.35mm 1/4" TS Mono Y-Cable Splitter Cord which I can use for iPad (NOT iPhone, more on that in a min) or other device with a 3.5mm headphone jack or line out, or even the headphone jack on the AlienWare DAW in a pinch. For serious mixing with the AW I use a Fiio E17K ALPEN 2 USB DAC Headphone Amplifier, again with a good AmazonBasics USB cable, and then the UGreen Y cable goes into the Fiio. iPad and DAW and other audio devices done.
· Channels 1 & 2 are open to accept XLR or line input from my Taylor or mic or preamp or a second device, anything really.
With a mixer the headphones being plugged in don't mute the main output, everything has its own level knob, so i can control everything, even those listening to headphone.
It's a bit extensive, but this gives me a totally flexible, clear, RF-free environment, all possible by this little Mackie control center of a mixer. I can honestly say I can't think of a thing I don't like about it. It's heavy metal construction and sports a power switch which many mini mixers don't have. And now my Eris 5s sound quiet and amazing, and my range of inputs is totally flexible.
One last note regarding RF interference: You still hear that "fax machine" sound faintly when an iPhone is nearby, does it on my wife's PC too, with simple shielded computer speakers. When the iPhone checks for mail for anything else, you hear it. Not horribly but it's there. There is one other Apple product that actually makes noise when you move it about: iTunes for Windows running on my PC! If I scroll a window or something similar, you hear faint RF noice! Other media playing software doesn't so this. WEIRD. Anyway, hope this info helps. If anything, use great cables.
Knobs move smoothly and there's no static.
Helpful Gain for mics and guitars.
Costs a little more.
But I appreciate the solid feeling.
Supposedly very dependable and preferred by pro audio people.
Note: In the first one I received, an EQ knob was super tight and hard to turn. I returned it immediately. The replacement they sent works fine.
