ROLAND M-160 16-CHANNEL LINE MIXER, GREAT CONDITION

This Roland M-160 Line Mixer was in our home studios storage room unused for years. This is a super quiet, low noise unit that is in great shape and working as it should. I included some information that I found online below. THANKS for checking it out!!!!

If this item is still up on Craigslist, it is still available.
ALL trade offers will be considered....



The M160 adheres to tried and proven mixer design with the channel inputs laid out on the left, master outputs to the middle/right, and auxiliary send/return controls on the far right. Two peak-reading LED bar meters are provided above the master faders, which indicate the left and right output signal levels. Monitoring of input signals before the master faders is taken care of by two small pre-fader LEDs located just below the meters. These glow green when channel signals are above —20dB and red at the onset of clipping (—6dB). The same system is employed on each of the 16 input channels to monitor the input signal peaks and is used in conjunction with the input channel Sensitivity control to set the optimum signal level.

Channels 1 and 2, incidentally, are primarily designed for microphone inputs, being rated at -50 to -10dBm. Channels 3 to 16 are intended for line level signal sources, such as direct feeds from synthesizers, drum machines etc, and are nominally rated at between -20 and +4dBm. However, all channel input connections are via quarter-inch unbalanced jack sockets on the rear panel, which means you can't use quality microphones fitted with XLR connectors - cheap dynamic mics only, I'm afraid.

Each input has its own pan pot and short-throw (30mm) channel fader, which is nonetheless pretty smooth in operation and perfectly adequate for the job. Accompanying these are three independent Effect Send level controls (all post-fader) and one Auxiliary Send control. Pressing the Aux Select pushbutton on the far right, the circuit can be switched so that all 16 channel Auxiliaries are either post-fader-ie. they function as a fourth Effects Send - or pre-fader, in which case they can be used to set up a mono foldback mix for monitoring purposes.

Rather unusual for this price range is the fact that each of the three dedicated Effects Send busses has its own pair of stereo Return jacks on the rear panel (the Left socket can be employed as a mono Return provided the Right jack is left unconnected). In this age of inexpensive stereo signal processors like the Alesis Micro Effects range, far too many budget mixers still fall down by offering only mono effects returns. Thank you Roland, this is precisely what we want to see! All we need now are stereo Sends to take advantage of the stereo inputs you find on many of today's digital reverb units - still, we can't expect everything for this price can we.

The Aux Return is mono but it does have its own pan pot for positioning the Return signal in the stereo mix, and there are 'master' Send and Return level controls located on the far right of the front panel for each of the four auxiliaries. There is also a very handy slider switch on the rear which lets you select either -20 or +4dBm input levels for Effect Returns 1 & 2 only; Returns 3 & 4 are permanently set for +4dBm operation. This makes it easier to accommodate both professional and budget signal processing gear on the one mixer, particularly those effects units which have no output level control of their own. As it stands, the Effects/Aux configuration of the M160 mixer works very well and offers a welcome degree of flexibility.
