Allen & Heath ZED-18 : 18 Channel Mixer with USB

The Allen & Heath ZED-18 has an incredibly advanced feature-set for a mixer at this level – it gives musicians, venues and hire companies access to 10 full mono channels and 4 stereo channels in a compact, rack mountable format. Configurable USB audio in/out makes it easy to capture stereo recordings.

The Allen & Heath ZED-18 is a great choice for small bands, venues and hire companies. In a market full of ‘me too’ mixers these consoles stand out from the pack with their comprehensive features, fine lines and quality construction. The Allen & Heath ZED-18 is ideal for groups who need to travel light.

Based on the proven preamps from the hugely successful PA series, the Allen & Heath ZED-18 has DuoPre preamps, which use a two stage design with carefully controlled amounts of gain in each stage. When amplifying the signal from the XLR input, the gain range is huge—69dB of range to be exact—and is very evenly distributed around the gain control, meaning better control of signal level. Most of the gain comes from the first stage, so unwanted noise is kept to a minimum. Line level signals are simply plugged into into the second stage of the preamp by using the line input jack socket, which has the great advantages of less noise and matching to a higher input impedance

Most important of all, the Allen & Heath ZED-18 lives up to the audio and build quality standards that have made Allen & Heath one of the most trusted names in professional audio for more than 40 years.
