Allen & Heath has extended its Zed series with the launch of Zed Power 1000, a compact 2X500W powered mixer with onboard FX, graphic EQ and USB recording/playback.

Allen & Heath Zed Power 1000Zed Power 1000’s two-channel, class-D amplifier is coupled to a linear power supply to deliver cool running efficiency, robustness and high peak headroom. Amplifier controls include individual level controls, status indication and routing matrix allowing stereo PA use or mono plus monitor/sub use.

The mixer has eight mic/line inputs offering three-band EQ with swept mid, plus two stereo inputs. Two of the jack inputs can be switched to take a low-level input from a guitar pickup. These inputs have been designed to recreate tube preamp characteristics.

A USB connection allows playback to/from a computer for capturing stereo recordings of shows or playing walk-in music or backing tracks from a laptop. The mixer is also equipped with XLR main stereo outputs, 60mm faders, a flexible monitoring section and 16 digital FX. ZED Power 1000 weighs in at 10.3kg (24lbs) and has a robust carry handle built into the chassis.

‘There are so many gigging musicians, schools, rental companies, hotels and conference venues who rely on powered mixers night after night,’ says Allen & Heath Senior Product Manager, Nicola Beretta. ‘ZED Power 1000 offers them a great solution: it’s lightweight, it delivers the proven audio quality that our ZED series is renowned for, and it’s built to last, with individual circuit boards, nutted pots and a rugged linear power supply.”

Zed Power 1000 is available from March 2015.
