As a Smooth Jazz Saxophonist I approach mixers from a different view point. I need something that's going to be flexible to meet my needs whether I'm playing with my band or traveling and just playing to tracks. What's more, I need it to be light weight and fairly compact, yet still giving me enough channels to run the band if needed...while also being fairly simple and straight forward as I may have a great sound tech one night, not so much the next or perhaps no tech at all and I need to set it and pretty much leave it other than an adjustment here and there. And last but not least.....the sound, that's a given, it needs to be nice and clean, crisp / clear sound with decent effects!! Afterall, I'm a sax player and a little reverb and delay can be the icing on the cake for a sax. (Often good for vocals too) But not just any reverb will do, I've tried various boards from Mackie, Behringer etc and all of them sounded thin and 'tinny'. I'm very happy with the size of the MG166cx, the compression and effects are nice and it's a straight forward board that if you've used any mixer before you can jump on it and feel comfortable. Try it out you don't be disappointed! (Posted on 3/23/13)
