Ashly MX-508 8 Input Stereo Mixer with EQ and 2 Aux Sends
The MX-508 is an 8-input stereo rackmountable mixer.
Designed for many applications, it has an extensive mix
of features for a small unit combined with excellent sound
and quiet performance.
The MX-508 features 84dB of gain to ensure full output with
low-level or distant microphones. Several years of research
went into the microphone preamp and the result is a discrete
circuit with better than -129 dBu Equivalent Input Noise (EIN)
and very low distortion. Low and High Shelving EQ combined
with mid-band peaking EQ tunable from 140Hz and 8 kHz
make for a very flexible tone control. Phantom power of +48
VDC is provided for condenser microphones via a switch on
the front panel. Each input has its own 20dB pad switch. Variable
gain trim and Mic/Line selection switches are also found
on each input channel. Rounding out the list of standard input
features are a Peak Clip indicator, two Aux Sends (factory-set
with one pre-EQ and level and the other post-EQ and level,
these sends may be modified by a qualified technician), in/out
channel patching, level and pan controls, and both balanced
XLR microphone and TRS Line inputs.
Transformer-balanced Left and Right XLR outputs are
standard, as are balanced Left and Right TRS 1/4" outs.
There is also an independent Mono output with its own
front panel level control, as well as a selectable Headphone
output with Level Control.
There are Pre-Master Sub In/Out patch points for linking
other mixers. Peak Clip indicators are also provided
for the Outputs, and the 10-Segment LED Meters may be
selected to monitor either Program Left and Right or Aux 1
and 2. Maximum output level is +24dB into 600 Ohms.
The MX-508 also has two Master Aux Sends and two
panable Master Aux Returns (one stereo and the other
mono). A 3.5mm stereo line in jack on the front panel
offers a convenient input alternative for MP3 players
and smartphones with level control to the Mains or to
Aux 1. Stereo RCA Outputs are also provided.
The MX-508 combines traditional Ashly quality with
internally modular construction in a package offering
outstanding value and reliability.
