Allen & Heath's third generation of MixWizard desk/rack mount consoles, introduced earlier this year, will be seen at a U.S. AES Convention for the first time this month. The new WZ312:2, WZ314:4:2, and WZ316:2 mixers utilize the latest technology to add new and improved features to the already well-established versatile functionality and renowned Allen & Heath build quality of the MixWizard range.

Allen & Heath is exhibiting at Booth #919 at the 117th AES Convention (Moscone Convention Center, San Francisco, October 28-31, 2004).

Sporting a stylish new look, the new, third generation, compact WZ316:2 and WZ312:2 feature a dedicated mono output fader, with innovative mode for control of aux fed subs, while the WZ314:4:2 builds on Allen & Heath's pioneering dual-functionality and boasts a 6x2 matrix, a unique feature for a compact mixer.

All MixWizard models have a new mic preamp design and advanced grounding scheme, which further enhance sonic quality. WZ3 consoles also feature individual phantom power switches, channel signal indicators, lamp sockets, and backup supply capability. Internal configuration options for channel aux sends and direct output are now on pluggable jumpers for user convenience.

At the AES Convention, Allen & Heath is also showing the LEDlamp, an 18-inch, 4-pin XLR gooseneck console lamp containing a built-in thumbwheel dimmer. The stylish lamp replaces traditional filament console lamps with more user-friendly cool white light and has the additional advantages of lower heat discharge and less current draw. The LEDlamp is compatible with all ML series, PA series, GL4000 desks and the new MixWizard range.
