Tascam has introduced the MZ-223 and MZ-372 rackmount analogue mixers, offering flexible inputs, mixing and routing for installs in small to mid-size venues.

The 2U-high MZ-223 offers five audio channels, each with a dedicated Gain potentiometer and two stereo sets of RCA line-level inputs (ten RCA inputs, total), that can be mixed, segregated and routed to three independent zones or destinations. Channels 1 and 2 can also accommodate phono-level signals for use with a turntable, making the MZ-223 suitable for DJ and residential applications. Two front-panel, balanced XLR inputs handle microphone signals.

Each of the MZ-223’s three stereo output zones present balanced XLR and unbalanced RCA line-level outputs, enabling long cable runs or connection to residential power amplifiers or powered speakers. A slider switches the RCA outputs between 0.75V and 1.5V. The MZ-223 also provides stereo unbalanced RCA master Record outputs, switchable for use with or without microphones that enable recording the main mix to an external recording device for capturing events. The front panel also includes a quarter-inch stereo headphone output with level control.

Front-panel volume sliders, routing switches and buttons, EQ knobs, and mute buttons enable simple, fast set-up and operation. A Talkover function automatically lowers other source levels when microphones are in use.

The 3U-high MZ-372 enables audio signals to be mixed, muted, and routed to two redundant outputs or destinations. Each of its six audio channels has an independent volume control and features two stereo sets of unbalanced RCA line-level inputs (12 RCA inputs, total) and six balanced XLR mic/line (switchable) inputs on the rear panel, plus a mic-level XLR input on the front panel. Channels 1, 2 and 3 can be switched to accommodate phono-level signals for use with a turntable. A pair of unbalanced RCA Booth outputs provide an additional feed with independent control for monitoring and can be switched between stereo and mono operation.

Each of the MZ-372’s dual outputs offer balanced XLR and unbalanced RCA jacks, enabling long cable runs or connection to a main mixer and monitor mixer, professional power amplifier, or residential power amplifier or powered speaker. A Talkover function automatically lowers other source levels when microphones are in use. A separate pair of unbalanced, line-level RCA recording outputs make it simple to capture events.

Like the MZ-223, the MZ-372 employs front-panel volume sliders, routing switches and buttons, EQ knobs, and mute buttons for simple, fast setup and operation. The front panel also includes a quarter-inch stereo headphone output with level control.

The Tascam MZ-223 and MZ-372 are shipping at MAP/street prices of US$399.99 and US$499.99 respectively.
