A four-input stereo miniature mixer. Four main channels have XLR mic input, bass-cut switches, where mic powering, input attenuators, channel gain and rotary faders are on channels 1 and 2, whereas channels 3 and 4 can be switched between line level and mic level with reduced gain and attenuation. Channels 1 and 2 can also matrix MS into AB stereo. An aux monitor input is also provided. The output section has a master fader, peak or VU meter (which can also show battery level), switchable limiter, internally adjustable tone inject, balanced main outputs on 5-pin XLR, with second balanced and unbalanced outputs on the same multiway connector as aux monitor return (for single cable connection to recorder/camcorder), and third output, unbalanced on 3.5mm jack. Headphone monitoring (A or B gauge jack, adjustable level) is switchable between mixer output and aux input, with MS matrixing available for monitoring MS recordings in AB stereo mode. Built-in slate microphone, LED meter illumination and pre-fade listening on channel 4.
Powered by 6 AA alkaline batteries giving more than 10 hours continuous use, with four pole DC input (5-18V DC). All this is packed into a rugged compact housing and supplied complete with webbing shoulder-strap.

The outer case of the mixer is made of aluminium. The Connector and Routing End Blocks are milled from solid aluminium bar, as is the Battery Compartment Door. The circuitry is constructed on multi-layer printed circuit boards with internal ground and power planes which ensure the integrity of the internal grounding system.
All control knobs are special to SQN and are turned and milled from solid aluminium bar. The internal battery compartment is milled and bored from a solid block of polyacetal engineering plastics material and the moving parts are aluminium and stainless steel.
All labels and legends on the mixer are permanent. On the end blocks they are engraved; on the front panel they are printed into the hard-anodised surface; on the baseplate they are reverse printed on a polycarbonate label.
The mechanical construction is a development of a system which has proven in the past to be resistant to mechanical damage.
