The IPM-1610V2 7-channel mixer is a perfect fit at the heart of any installed sound system where flexibility needs to be paired with simplicity of operation. It offers 5 multi-purpose inputs which can either be fed with a balanced microphone signal or an unbalanced stereo line signal. One further balanced stereo line level input is specifically useful when processing an auxiliary line-level source from further distance, like a mixer on a stage, or the output of a different room’s system. By inserting a signal cable into the provided 3.5mm TRS jack on the front, this channel can also be used for a local signal feed from a portable device. The additional, dedicated microphone input with adjustable talkover (priority) provides control over announcements. Every input – with the exception of the balanced stereo input – is equipped with rear-panel gain control and a front-panel 2-band equalizer. The external shutdown and emergency signal input connections allow integration with central announcement and evacuation systems.
