series takes the industry standard of compact analog mixers to the next level of performance, design and durability. The enormous success of Mackie's VLZ mixers relies on an intense attention to detail, build quality and continuous improvement over 25 years. The new VLZ4 series adds significant improvements in three areas: high-quality preamps, high-headroom/low-noise signal path, and a nearly indestructible chassis design.
The performance of the included Onyx preamps is more than proven. Their quality sound rivals any high-priced, boutique preamp on the market. Additionally, Mackie has added custom op-amps and class-leading summing bus architecture that deliver the highest headroom and lowest noise possible. With the VLZ4's improved sonic characteristics, you can be sure that you will get a faithful representation of the original source material free from noise that's often associated with similar "budget" mixers.
Mackie's VLZ4 mixers are truly "built-like-tank." Able to withstand even the most extreme abuse - the VLZ4 series features a nearly indestructible steel wrap-around chassis and grime-resistant rotary sealed pots. Additionally, the VLZ4's new sleek black powder coat finish and high-contrast knobs make it easy to use in low-light situations. Plus, it just looks cool!
Mackie's new VLZ4 series offers superior advancements to their already rich heritage of continuous improvement of quality and reliable compact mixers. There's a VLZ4 mixer in nearly every size from small desktop mixers to medium and large live sound applications, all at the same affordable prices you've come to expect from Mackie.
