Obsolete radio mics

Hi I have an AKG WMS40/SR40 dual wireless mic system that runs on channel 69. From a post a few years ago, I found that they are illegal to use now. We’ve gone back to using wired mics anyway but I’m not sure what you do with mics like this. I’m assuming just take them to the local recycling centre....

Re: Is passive PA gear worth anything?

*********************** Hi Dan, Passive gear do have value, and you have to be in .line with the prospective user for the price to be right for you. Selling as a group will be simpler, but selling as individual item will produce a bit more buyers, but will take up more of your time. Here in the US,...

Re: Behringer XENYX outputs

For a small versatile mixer, I'd suggest an Alesis Multimix 8 USB FX. https://www.alesis.com/products/view/multimix-8-usb-fx I have an older one I bought used (£60) and it's got the most features of all the small mixers around that I could see (and were affordable). The built-in FX are OK if not ou...

Re: Behringer XENYX outputs

Here's another endorsement for A&H's Zed series. I have both a Zed6 and a Zed10FX. These are the only small mixers I could find that don't have an external power supply box. Just plug in a mains cable and you're good to go. (The Zed6 use a C5 "mickey mouse" cable, whereas the Zed10 is...

Re: Behringer XENYX outputs

I've had 1202FX and still have a 1202. Unlike Dave I've had zero problems with the power lead coming out, despite some 'robust' use at a regular open mic night for a few years. But like Dave I've always found the sound quality to be perfectly acceptable and the pre-amps plenty good enough for pub w...

Re: Behringer XENYX outputs

I have had two 1202 mixers through my hands in the last 6 months and I can say they perform very well in terms of noise and general sound quality and as far as I know the outputs are impedance balanced. I have one feeding a pair of Tannoy 5As over 10mtrs of cable and there is no noise pickup that I...

Re: Behringer XENYX outputs

Worth having another look round. I last looked in detail a couple of years ago and there might be something else that's appeared since then to consider. Thanks. Yes have had quite a good look around. Souncraft and RCF also came up. The former has non switchable phantom power to the pre's apparently...

Re: Is passive PA gear worth anything?

Well, not a great debut trying to sell the PA on Ebay. It's off now and the equiries were suspicious and time wasting. Took a while to figure it out.
Will be part exchanging it at a reputable store for some Yamaha DBR10s.

Re: Behringer XENYX outputs

That Alesis is 10.25" x 10.75", compared to the 1202FX's 9.5" x 8.7", so it's less than 1" wider but 2" longer. But that's still pretty compact. Yes, more so than the A&H Zed 10FX. Ticks all the boxes. FX should be ok, on par with Behringer's. I also have a Xenyx 1...

Re: Behringer XENYX outputs

Just think about what you really want from the mixer. Do you want a monitor send where you can adjust channel levels rather than just have a duplicate of the main mix? Would a mid control be useful with the instruments you use etc? Needs to be small. Xenyx 1202FX is ideal size. FX and 3 band eq imp...

Re: Behringer XENYX outputs

Hi I’m soon to be getting a pair of Yamaha DBR10 active speakers for a small PA and occasional monitor use in a larger system. Looking at maybe getting a small mixer for duo gigs and the Behringer XENYX 1002FX or 1202FX look ideal. Not too sure though if the jack outputs are balanced. I don't think...
