Allen & Heath Mixward 3 14:4:2, analog mixing console
The WZ3 14:4:2 is a remarkably dynamic compact mixer, with multi-functionality that allows it to be used for front-of-house, monitors, and live or studio recording.
Now in its 3rd generation, the legendary MixWizard range builds on its market leading status by adding a new mic preamp design and advanced grounding scheme, which both further enhance sonic quality. Other improvements include individual phantom power switches, channel signal indicators, lamp socket and backup supply capability.
