ZED-10FXHead Room galore! Clean sound! FX the best I've ever heard for built-ins. Compact. Layed out very well. User friendly. Would like to see some mute buttons/lights, however, but level dials are OK for this price. After listening to the difference between this board and many other boards I have owned, I will never purchase anything else but Allen & Heaths. Awesome! This mixer rocks!

Absolutely Amazing MixerWhen most people think of a compact mixer, they think of a mixer with no special features, and the minimal inputs, and sound quality. Re-think your whole thoughts of a compact mixer when you're thinking of the ZED 10FX. I purchased this mixer as my secondary mixer from Allen and Heath for solo and duo shows, and I'm absolutely blown away. It's incredible to think how powerful, and clean this little mixer is. Everything you'd expect from Allen and Heath while maintaining a tiny size.
My only complaint (but it's not a huge deal to me), is that there are no mute buttons. However, I understand with every button adds size, so it's understandable.
The built in effects are as clean as all the other A&H boards, and do an amazing job. This mixer should be a must have for any band, regardless of the size. You can find a use for this guy in any setup.

A step up from cheap mixersMy partner and I recently bought this mixer for our act (2 mics and a keyboard). After burning through two cheap mixers in the last 4 years, we wanted something reliable. We've only had a chance to use this in a couple of shows, but so far I've been impressed. The build quality seems really great, and I was pleasantly surprised by a noticable improvement in sound quality from our last mixer. The XLR outputs are very nice to have. Sure, it would be nice to have some of the other things expensive mixers have (sliding faders, compression...), but at this price point I'm very satisfied.

Don't Let The Price Fool YouThis mixer is serious. The pre amps are of a quality unheard of in this price range. They are very quiet and have a nice sound with plenty of gain. The FET instrument inputs are actually quite nice also. I have to admit I haven't had a chance to run guitar through them much yet, but they get an incredible bass sound! The effects, while somewhat limited, are very good quality. The EQ is decent and definitely musical, but I tend to run everything flat when using it to record. The routing capabilities and variety of outputs are also well above what one would expect for a mixer this size and price. All in all, this is a very capable and useful mixer whose size and price belie its quality and features.
My only two complaints are there are no mute buttons, but that seems typical with such small format mixers. My other complaint is more of a question. Why do companies keep using USB interfaces that are limited to 16 bits when 24 bits has been pretty much the "standard" for quite some time now. You're better off just mixing the analog outputs into your sound card or interface when recording.
That being said, for the money the pre amps and routing features alone make it a great deal!

Solid Build, No mutes!This console sounds great and has the same build quility as the larger ZED desks. My only beef is that I didn't notice that it doesn't have mutes for each changel. Not a deal breaker, but makes punching an MC in and out a pain.
