July 6, 2008 by Mobile Beat

Las Vegas, Nevada- InfoComm – June 18, 2008 – Mackie expands its popular VLZ3 compact mixer line with the release of the 402-VLZ3 and the 802-VLZ3 Premium Mic/Line Mixers. Incorporating the same technology as their big brothers in the series, the 402-VLZ3 and 802-VLZ3 bring Mackie’s premium sound, performance and reliability to the ultra-compact mixer category.”The 802-VLZ3 is the perfect mixer for someone who wants the overall quality of a 1202-VLZ3, but doesn’t need that many input channels,” said Greg Young, Mackie Product Manager. “The 402-VLZ3 is designed to be compact with an intelligently scaled feature set that maintains the sound quality and performance of the other Mackie VLZ3s. These are the only mixers available for those whose input counts are low, but whose standards are not.”

The 402- and 802-VLZ3 feature the studio-grade XDR2® (Extended Dynamic Range) mic preamps, proprietary Active EQ, and modern summing bus architecture to ensure high-headroom, low-noise performance. The impressive ultra-compact, rugged, all-steel chassis houses switchable line/Hi-Z instrument inputs, phantom power for use with condenser microphones, and bright stereo LED meters.

The 402-VLZ3 features 2 mono mic/line channels, a dedicated stereo line channel and an assignable stereo RCA input channel. Mono channels each include an XDR2 preamp, switchable high-pass filter, 2-band EQ and a channel overload LED, and can be hard-panned for stereo applications.

The 802-VLZ3 includes 5 channel strips with 3 XDR2 mic preamps, the Alt 3-4 bus, a pre-/post-switchable aux send, a dedicated stereo aux return, plus a comprehensive control room section.

The 402-VLZ3 and 802-VLZ3 are now available world-wide. The 402-VLZ3 has a U.S. MSRP of $129.99. The 802-VLZ3 has a U.S. MSRP of $259.99. See the entire VLZ3 Series at InfoComm 2008, June 18-20 at the Las Vegas Convention Center, Las Vegas, Nevada in Booth# C4549.
