Rolls MX153 Mix Mate 5-Channel Mixer

Ideal for background music and paging in churches, schools, and more. Flick a switch to automatically duck the Stereo Source 3 level when Mic 1 is in use.
The MX153 is a one-half rack space, two microphone and three stereo source mixer. The unit provides a compact and efficient way to mix sources such as AM/FM tuners, CD players, and video players with dynamic or condenser microphones. Applications include background music and paging for small clubs, churches, schools, restaurants, and much more.

- Two Mic inputs with available phantom power

- Treble or Bass cut controls for each mic

- Three stereo source inputs

- Bass and Treble controls on source 1 & 2

- Signal muting (ducking) on mic 1 & source 3

- Switchable Mono or Stereo mode on unbalanced outputs

- Uses 12VDC power for easy use in mobile applications

Each microphone channel has a Level and Tone control. Sources One and Two have Level adjustments and pass through combined Bass and Treble controls. Source Three has a Level adjustment only. The Microphone inputs are balanced XLR jacks, all Source inputs are stereo RCA except for the front 1/8 jack on CH3 for an MP3 player, etc. The main output is stereo RCA.

An included 12VDC adapter (Rolls PS27) provides power to the unit. A series of six DIP switches provide important features to the MX153. Two switches apply the 12VDC of phantom power to the individual Microphone Inputs. A second switch sums the program material of Source Three to mono, and a third sums the overall output to mono. Another switch provides priority ducking to Source Three input allowing that channel to mute read more the other source inputs for use with a jukebox. The final switch configures Microphone Input One as a paging input, ducking the other microphone and Sources One and Two.

"Great experience with Mixer in a Spinning room."
Verified Customer zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
i'll keep my eyes open but as long as it's working, I'll let well enough alone. This was a donation to a local Y.
The unit is being used in a Spinning exercise room to combine instructors voice with the music. It is working very well, was very easy to set up and balance. The mic input sounds a little tinny but that may be tone settings on the receiver that is used or I have the tone settings for the microphone set incorrectly. I would definitly buy another one of these for this application.
For this application where I needed to combine Mic input with line input from a CD player or iPod into a consumer level receiver, this works great. Other mixers did not have as many line inputs. This seems to have been designed for this application.
Ease of Use
The manual was clear enough. I have experence with electronics but do not have experience with live sound. The staff at ZZounds were great in their response to a couple of what must have seemed like very simplistic questions.
product worked well right out of the box and appears to be made well.
Absolutely a great value.
Manufacturer Support
Asked questions of both the vendor and manufacturer and both responded quickly and completely.
The Wow Factor
it is a practical addition allowing all sound to go through one set of speakers. It used to be the music through the main speakers and voice through a mono portable PA system.
