Allen & Heath QU-16 Digital Mixer

Now in a feature-packed new Chrome Edition, Qu-16 reshapes digital mixing, combining innovative design and exceptional functionality to create a superb professional mixing experience. Bristling with all the features you’d expect from a top of the range digital console and incorporating technologies pioneered on the GLD and iLive digital mixing systems, Qu-16 has the power and pedigree to deliver class-leading audio performance.

Qu-16 features sixteen AnalogiQTM digitally controlled preamps with advanced zero-crossing detection and a padless 1dB-step gain stage, which have been closely allied to the DSP for optimal gain accuracy and audio transparency. The analogue signal is captured by high-class, low latency 24bit analogue to digital converters, which are matched to 24bit digital to analogue converters to deliver the required high quality output. The AnalogiQTM preamp design has been refined to offer superb transparency, minimal distortion and an ultra-low noise floor, with a warm, musical sound that is missing from some digital consoles.

    This a a very well designed & built desk. I found it took me very little time to get up and running at gigs when I first got it. The multitrack recording is easy to set up, and works very well. 50m of multicore I can carry in one hand! Firmware updates have continued to improve the desk since I got it - the Automatic Mixer function, for instance, is really useful for conferences etc. and the various apps allow me full operation, or I can lock them right down to help less experienced operators avoid changing things they shouldn't! I'm so happy with this desk that I have bought a QU-Pac too.
