The RPS-1620 is a compact rack-mountable mixer with 8 stereo line input channels, perfectly suited as a submixer for stereo sources such as keyboards, sound modules and electronic drum kits. Due to its fully servo-balanced inputs, it works equally well in installed sound systems where balanced signals from greater distance need to be combined. Last but not least it doubles as a level translator between +4 and -10dB, between which every input can be switched. Each dual-input channel sports individual balance and level controls, plus a double-function mute button which uses the mute indicator LED as a clip indicator when the respective channel is not muted. An AUX/Monitor bus (pre volume) is provided for monitoring or effect processor interfacing, to which each channel can contribute with adjustable level. The master section features separate left/right master volume controls and a master AUX send control, which can also be sent to the built-in headphone monitor section. Given its affordability and the high-headroom of 20dB due to the fully analog design, this mixer is a problem solver with almost unlimited applications.
