Allen & Heath have launched two additions to the ZED Series of small analogue mixers, designed for use by solo artists and small bands. The aim is to reduce size and cost with 60mm short-throw, high quality faders. The inputs configurations of the ZED60-10FX and ZED60-14FX are 4 mono/3 stereo and 8 mono/3 stereo respectively with two of the mono channels offering high impedance jack inputs that can take a normal line level or a low level input from a guitar pickup, so guitars can be plugged straight into the mixer without the need for DI boxes. These inputs have been crafted to recreate the sound of a classic tube preamp in a combo or head amp for definition and warmth. One of the stereo inputs can accommodate MP3/CD players or keyboards via RCA inputs. Both mixers are equipped with configurable USB audio in/out, making it easy to capture a stereo recording at a gig or in the studio, XLR main stereo outputs, internal power supply and detachable IEC cable, a flexible monitoring section with headphone and speaker feed outputs, and 16 high quality digital effects developed from the iLive digital mixing system. Retail price in Australia for the ZED60-10FX is $599 and for the ZRF60-14FX $699. More info is at
