The XENYX 1002B represents a significant milestone in the development of mixer technology. Equipped with our premium XENYX mic preamps, it can easily hold its own against the most expensive stand-alone mic preamps, both in the case of sound quality and available headroom. XENYX preamps offer a staggering 130 dB of dynamic range, with a bandwidth that extends from below 10 Hz to well above 200 kHz. XENYX mic pres provide such transparent, crystal-clear performance you just might think someone upgraded your mics.
State-of-the-Art Goes Portable
Whether you plug it into the wall or power it via 9V batteries, the XENYX 1002B comes equipped with most of the features you’ve come to expect from our larger mixers, including XENYX mic preamps for amazing sound quality, phantom power to be used with professional-grade condenser mics, 2-Track inputs and outputs, and 60 mm faders. The four stereo channels accept left/right or mono 1/4″ TRS/TR inputs, and three of them also accommodate microphones (with separate Trim controls). The compact XENYX 1002B mixer also features our highly musical 3-band British EQ, plus an FX and monitor send for each channel, making it a will have to-have for any audio toolkit.
Sublimely musical British EQ
The British consoles of the 1960s and ‘70s changed the sound of rock and roll-without them the British Invasion might not have happened. Those legendary mixing desks soon became the envy of engineers and producers far and wide the world. The 3-band EQ on the XENYX 1002B mixer is based on that very same circuitry, allowing you to imbue signals with improbable warmth and detailed musical character. Even when applied generously, these equalizers exhibit sweet forgiveness and superb audio quality.
Applications and value
Don’t let the small footprint fool you-the XENYX 1002B is built to the same exacting standards as our larger format XENYX mixers and is housed in an equally rugged steel chassis. It is the ideal choice for keyboardists who wish to mix down a couple of instruments or sound modules for live or recording applications. Singers who perform with backing tracks, in addition to instrumentalist/singers (acoustic guitar or piano bar, for example) find the XENYX 1002B indispensable for patching into “house” systems.
Its compact size and flexible input scheme also make it the natural choice of sports announcers for calling play-by-play game action. Likewise, radio and TV reporters especially like the XENYX 1002B for its ease-of-use, remarkable fidelity and rugged reliability. And the 9 V battery option allows newscasters and correspondents to use the 1002B in remote locations where power is hard to come by. (Two 9 V alkaline batteries are required for normal operation, three for phantom power).
