Mackie Onyx 820i FireWire Mixer at a Glance:
Premium-quality mixer with proven components
The Onyx 820i is, first and foremost, a Mackie mixer. It houses three of Mackie's premium-quality Onyx mic preamps for natural, transparent sound. Its mic/line channels are equipped with 3-band Perkins EQ with sweepable mids. Signal routing is easy and flexible. On top of all that, the Onyx 820i is built Mackie-tough.
24-bit/96kHz FireWire audio interface
The digital side of the Onyx 820i is equally robust. Mackie has tested and certified the Onyx 820i for use with all major DAW software. It allows you to send channels, aux sends, or master L/R signals discretely to your Mac or PC for recording. The Onyx 820i also routes a stereo return from your DAW to a control room or to a channel for further mixing. You'll be impressed by how smoothly the Onyx 820i integrates with your favorite software!
Pro features and I/O options
The Onyx 820i includes the tools you'd expect from a quality mixer. Phantom power is available for each of the three Onyx preamps. The first two channels include DIs for direct connection of guitars and other instruments. A talkback section offers a built-in mic and flexible routing. All in all, the Mackie Onyx 820i is the ideal solution for both mixing and computer recording!

I am absolutely blown away with how user-friendly this... read more [+] thing is, and how clear the sound is.
I was planning on buying a bigger Onyx (1620 or 1220) but even this 8 channel has more features than I'll need.
I only wish I had more free time to use it. close [-]
Sweet tool from Sweetwater
by Al Harper from Chillicothe, OhioThe sales guy was great answering my questions, placed the order around noon and the mixer arrived the next day. Sweet! Great service! Now about the 820i Onyx. I have been recording through an Q10... read more [+] Aardvark for about 7 years on Win Xp, had read on the internet that there were problems. Not on my PC. I even left my Aardvark card in the PCI slot just disabled it in the control panel. The 820i installed quickly and worked flawlessly and sounds great. The CPU performance meter is running nice and low with ideal buffer settings. One more very important note. Sweetwater's price was as good as or better than any others I saw and they let me buy it on 3 payments. Sweet, Sweetwater! close [-]
