The Ashly Audio MX-406 is a rack-mountable six-input, stereo microphone/line
mixer designed to be used in fixed or portable installations. Each input
will accept either microphone or line-level signals. If microphones are
used, a -20dB pad switch is available. The microphone input has an ultra
low-noise studio-grade mic preamp with up to 60dB of mic preamp gain.
A three-position switch allowing you to set input gain for -20, -40 and
-60dB is located on the front panel.
Each input of the Ashly Audio MX-406 has bass and treble shelving filters
with individual control of each filter and a level and pan control. A
separate Aux input control adjusts line level sources, such as an external
processor, CD player or tape deck.
Additional front panel controls include: Stereo Aux Input, Aux Master
Output, Left and Right Stereo Output and an On/Off Power switch. A Mono/Phones
output control allows you to adjust the mono output and stereo headphone
output. The Stereo headphone output jack is located on the front panel.
Front panel LED indicators include channel clip, Phantom power, AC power
and an 11-step LED output level meter. Connections on the rear panel include
a combination 1/4” - XLR jack for each input and an XLR transformer
balanced mono output. The balanced stereo output jacks are 1/4”
TRS. Channel inserts are 1/4” TRS. Left and right Aux In (return)
and Record Out are RCA type jacks. A switch turns the 48V Phantom Power
for use with condenser mics on and off. Designed and built in the USA,
the Ashly Audio MX-406 has an all-steel chassis, contains only quality
components and has a five-year warranty.
