Comments about TASCAM M-164FX 16-Input Mixer with Effects:
It's obvious Tascam spent their time, effort and money on the electronics of this mixer. Plenty of plastic in the case but this one sounds good. The controls are mounted on a metal faceplate and the 45mm faders are smooth and feel great. Mic preamps are pretty clean with a smooth analog quality. Enough gain for my ribbon mics. 3-band EQ is adequate and the mid band frequency hits a good spot for most uses. The built-in effects are very good for this price point. Oh, did I mention the meter bridge? A great feature for most any purpose. Complaints? I would have liked a few more Aux and Sub mix possibilities but all of the fundamentals are there. Also, a single, across-the-board phantom power switch really limits my use of mixed condenser and ribbon mics.
