Allen & Heath System 8 - 16-8-2 - manual -
[later grey style mk II/mk II style] The System 8 mixers were a very popular desk as they were quite price-breaking at the time of release (82/83 for the first series), and quickly found a home in many studio's and pa systems offering quality facilities in a non-modular format, built in meter-bridge and more. but then that to me is half their charm, you get a b working area, with plenty of space between channels and nice chunky pots...

Don't think cos they are old they are not as 'good' as a modern mixer, the eq on these mixers is SO sweet, really really warm and fat, and tracks mixed on this desk seem to have really good definition... all is laid out clearly and working with one is a breeze, they are VERY easy to understand for the newbies too because you don't have any cryptic routing & switching modes like found on so many compact modern mini-mixers!

Ok, so that's my experience of this mixer series, and i would not hesitate to use one again as a front-end for a PC dital system nowadays if I had the space. - These would be perfect also for anyone seeking to setup a budget/midrange classic analog style studio to accompany a 16 track.
Allen & Heath System 8 mixers can be found reasonably easily in the free-ad's and I think they are one of the finest choices for a cheap affordable s/h mixer despite their age.
