The power of digital mixing and the freedom of wireless iPad control.
Mackie helped revolutionize the world of digital mixing with the DL1608, by seamlessly blending a live sound mixer with the practical touch-control and wireless freedom of an iPad. Now they™ve scaled things down to bring you the same incredible wireless freedom, but in a more manageable, compact size. The DL806 is an 8-channel version of its bigger brother, but has the same revolutionary wireless iPad control making any live sound engineer' job and workflow much more enjoyable and exciting.
With 8 high-quality Onyx microphone preamps, 24-bit Cirrus Logic AD/DA converters, and powerful internal DSP processing, the DL806 has plenty of unmatched hardware power to support the extremely intuitive user interface of the iPad. There is an iPad dock built-into the unit should you choose to use it in it' standard mixing form, or you can simply pop the iPad out of the dock to freely move about the venue to adjust your mix at will with the use of an additional Wi-Fi router. You™ll have Full hands-on control of audio level, 4-band EQ, compression, gate, delay, reverb, and more for each of the DL806' 8 channels and master fader. Perfect for a wide variety of smaller applications and venues, the DL806 is the most modern, powerful utility mixer available. Forget bulky consoles and racks of gear. The power is at your fingertips.

Comments about Mackie DL806 8-Channel Digital Live Sound Mixer with iPad Control:
Most of the reviews already point out the great things that this board does... clean inputs, great sound, ease of use, excellent pre-sets, etc. but I would like to comment on the one item where it is sadly lacking. Wireless functionality. Why would you create such a fine piece of equipment and make it so that you have to buy another piece of gear in order to have the wireless functionality? Yes, I know this is written in the write up, but you had to look close. What jumped out to me was "wireless", just like the competition's board. I had to assume that Mackie would have (at the least) the same wireless capabliltiy but it was not until after I got it in my house and tried to set it up that it became apparent that this would not work out of the box. Could have been great and five star. Just sad and easily remedied in the initial design stage.
