From Our Research Team:
So You Wanted To Meet The Wizard ...Allen & Heath presents the third generation of MixWizard, the MixWizard3 16:2 with even better sound quality, new preamp design, tailored EQ frequencies, an extra mono output on fader which can switched to provide a sub-bass mix from channel aux 6, and several routing changes to make the engineer's life easier. Put together with new styling, extra lamp socket, new Sys-Link options and backup power supply and it's easy to see that Allen & Heath just made the MixWizard3 16:2 even better.
Allen & Heath MixWizard3 16:2 at a Glance:
8 or 16 mic / line channels with 4 band EQ, HPF, individual phantom power, 6 auxes, mute switch, signal and peak indicator leds and 100mm smooth action fader. A configurable direct out and insert using all-metal TRS jacks are provided.
Stereo Mix with AB out
Main output controlled by 100mm faders with 12 segment 3 color metering with insert. A-B output for additional L&R stereo output selectable pre or post L&R faders. Unique underpanel mode switch to configure A-B as a local monitor output for additional stereo monitoring.
Dedicated Mono Output
Mono fader feeds mono XLR output. Source select L+R sum or aux 6 mix for creating separate mono/C or aux fed sub mix.
6 Auxiliary Sends
6 auxiliaries: 1-2 prefade (option: link to follow pre/post switch), 3-4 switchable pre/post fade (option: permanently prefade) and 5- and 6 post fade (option to follow pre/post switch). Internal option to configure stereo channel L signal to odd auxes and R signal to even auxes. Aux masters are rotary controls with TRS outputs. The aux busses can be monitored in mono or related stereo pairs.
4 Band EQ plus HPF
Mono channels have separate controls for sweep and cut/boost on mid bands. HPF @ 100Hz is switchable.
2 Stereo Returns
(TRS) line inputs, routed via level controls to L&R mix. ST1 can feed aux 1-4. Note: the internal FX returns to ST1. The ST1 input allows external FX to be mixed in.
On-board Digital FX
32 FX programs with external midi editing / control. Can be configured in single mode (16 programs fed from aux 5) or Dual mode (8 programs fed from aux 5 plus another 8 programs fed from aux 6). FX are returned via ST1 to the mix, aux 1-4. The effects can be muted using a footswitch. WZ FX editor software is available from the website.
The MixWizard WZ316:2 features a built-in stereo digital effects processor. This can be configured to work as a single effects engine fed from AUX5, or in dual mode as two effects engines independently fed from AUX5 and AUX6. The processed signal is routed back to the mix through the ST1 (ST5) stereo return channel. In dual mode the two stereo effects mix together into the return channel.
Headphone output and local monitor possible, with separate level controls. Red led indicator when PFL on input channels is selected. PFL signal overrides the selected monitor source and L&R metering. A-B output can be configured as local stereo monitor

Best mixer for the money
by Rick Perry from Easley, SCThis board is everything I was looking for in a mixer. Each channel has it's own phantom power as well as a PAD. This lets you actually use each channel for 2 separate inputs. Built in effects work gr... read more [+]eat and 6 aux channels to work with. Also other features that you will just have to find out when you purchase this awesome board. The channel faders have plenty of smooth travel and this board looks great overall. No need to buy rack mounting rails as with other boards... Just take off the side plates and the rails are built in!

My most impressive thing to note is the high mid and low mid EQ sweeps. Most boards don't have this and it really lets you tweak the sound to exactly what you need.
My only problem is I wished that the light would have been included close [-]

Why own anything else
