Great-sounding mixer with smart capabilities at a manageable price.

In a market that has a glut of small format mixing consoles, the Alto ZEPHYR ZMX862 is an excellent option. Its combination of low price, good build quality and smartly designed feature set has made it a real leader in a very competitive category.

The ZEPHYR ZMX862 is a 6-channel, 2-bus mixer with two phantom power-equipped microphone inputs, a three-band EQ and two AUX sends on each of the two mono channels and on the two stereo channels, and two-track inputs for audio playback.

You can plug dynamic, condenser, and wireless microphones into the first two channels, and you also get two stereo channel inputs for keyboards, drum machines, and other instruments. What's more, you can easily plug in your MP3 player, CD players, or audio from a DVD player into the CD/TAPE inputs. But, you also have two AUX sends that you can use to send streams of audio from your mixer to a digital effects unit, stage monitor, TV screen, or any number of sources. Choose the ZMX862 as the audio central command for your live performances, home studio, or video suite.

All Alto Professional ZEPHYR ZMX mixers are designed with high headroom and ultra low-noise mic preamps, so you get the full dynamic range of your mix every time.

Sometimes venues are dark and it can be hard to see what you're working with. Alto Professional solves this problem by not only color coding each section of the mixer, but also by using brightly colored knobs so that you can easily find what you need to adjust before you ever lay a finger on the mixer. The blue, red, yellow and white pots are instantly easy to identify in dim lighting. LED indicators for output level, peak, and phantom power also assist in making sure that you have multiple visual cues that compliment everything you're hearing.

The Alto ZEPHYR ZMX862 is a good sounding, reliable compact mixer for solo and duo acts, or for venues that have a need for a good sounding, small-format mixing console.

      Comments about Alto Zephyr Series ZMX862 6-Channel Compact Mixer:

      I have a larger Alto Zephyr mixer. This model ZMX862 is perfect for 2 performers. It will handle 3 if neeed.It is very portable and light weight. It will hold up under everyday use very well. There is no effects built in but sometimes it's not needed.

        Comments about Alto Zephyr Series ZMX862 6-Channel Compact Mixer:

        I bought this as a small DJ rig and for showing movies at campgrounds and events. It works well. I only wish it had some internal effects to it, but it can't be beat for the price. It is unpowered, so I run it into my 300 watt amp. Nice, clear sound without any noise. Overall a great product.

          Comments about Alto Zephyr Series ZMX862 6-Channel Compact Mixer:

          I was looking for a small mixer to compliment my Bose system which only has four channels. I purchased this solely on the reviews written and I am extremely pleased. I am a sound consultant for churches and I found the sound quality to be exceptional for price. The independent channel EQ has a nice wide range that will make whatever you plug into that channel sound good. Time will give a better idea of the durability but I think if protected (I purchase a case for everything I own) it will last a long time.

              Comments about Alto Zephyr Series ZMX862 6-Channel Compact Mixer:

              I play drums and sing backing vocals, and I constantly am in need of a good monitor system. I play along with a metronome and use some great noise-cancelling in-ear monitors, but also need to hear the other vocalists and some guitars/keys. Using this mixer, I can plug in the metronome to channel 1, and an aux send from the main mixer with my own custom mix to channel 2, and listen to both in my in-ears through the headphone out. Great monitor mixer, and even has 2 aux sends of its own.

                I produce a weekly radio show and was looking for a mixer that was portable yet packed with features. This is it! I love the 3 band EQ on each channel and the very small foot print. I will be using it to record show segments in restaurants and museums. There is NO hum or buzzing. Fully satisfied and happy.
