Ashly MX406 overview


The Ashly MX-406 is a six input audio mixer with line and microphone inputs on each channel. The MX-406 may be used to supplement larger consoles or for use as a stand alone mixer in sound-reinforcement, portable installations and project studios. The MX-406 features six studio grade, low-noise XLR and 1/4" combination connectors that are capable of microphone and line level signal. Each input features -20, -40 and -60dB input gain control settings.


All mic preamps are capable of supplying +48V phantom power (globally switched) to condenser microphones. The output section features stereo balanced 1/4" phone line XLR mono connectors. Unbalanced L/R RCA stereo connections are featured for connecting player / recorder devices. 1/4" TRS Phone inserts are featured on all inputs and enable routing to external signal processors. The front panel features Level, Pan and a 3-band EQ control. Its compact, 2U (two space) rackmount design allows easy storage and transport for mobile use.
