A&H ZED NOW WITH POWER
Allen & Heath has extended its well-known ZED series with the launch of ZED Power 1000, a compact 2 x 500W powered mixer with onboard FX, 9 band graphic EQ and USB recording/playback.
The amplifier addition is a two channel, class-D type coupled to a linear power supply designed with robustness, high peak headroom and smooth bottom end in mind. Amplifier controls include individual level, status indication and routing matrix allowing stereo PA use or mono plus monitor/sub use. The 9 band stereo graphic EQ provides convenient flexibility when optimizing your PA for the room.
The ZED Power 1000 has eight mic/line inputs, each with three band EQ, plus two stereo inputs. Two of the jack inputs can be switched to accept a low level input from a guitar, enabling you to go without a DI.
The USB connection allows playback to/from a computer for capturing stereo recordings of shows or playing tracks from a laptop. The mixer is also equipped with XLR main stereo outputs, 60mm faders, a flexible monitoring section and 16 high quality digital FX. ZED Power 1000 weighs in at a modest 10.3kg (24lbs) and has a robust carry handle built into the chassis for easy transport.
ZED Power 1000 is priced at $2,299 and is already available.
