Great little mixer

Hi all,

If some of you are like me I have a computer with audio out, my Flex radio with audio out, a desk radio (Icom) with audio out etc etc.

I wanted to bring all these together into one set of headphones or powered speakers. I had used a semi-pro production mixer, a channels, but the cabling was a mess as many inputs took TRS 1/4 inch plugs or in some cases the channels had separate L and R inputs requiring splitter cables.

I also got a fair amount of hum at times.

I found this product on Amazon:

Which is simply great. It's small, much smaller than my production mixer. All inputs/outputs are 1/8 stereo and each input has a variable adjustment to go from line to mic which seems to do a much better job at eliminating the hum.

Highly recommended. No RFI issues so far at 1500 watts where my production mixer some times would pick stuff up. I do have ferrites on some of the cables. But for the price this is a great little mixer!

    Wait... you mean I don't need four sets of speakers and three headphones on my desk? Having a single set of speakers headphones seems very... untechnological. 😉

    Yep! And with the mixer, I can mix in a little cool waltz music to go with the waltzing bug CW that's all over 40m! Sometimes I find a tune that fits it perfectly! 😁
