Anyone got any experience with these mixers?

Need a cheap but decent 12 - 16 channel mixer for smaller gigs.

Used one for 3 years without a single issue. If you get one that was not built on a Fri afternoon then it should  give you good service.

Solid build, the eq's aren't as good as the Allen & Heath imho but they are very stable.

Jack inputs on line which means lots of adapters.

Mine is still running after 5 years of abuse :) Nice not to need an external PSU.

Used the M4 for a few years, my only gripe was the fact its 11u deep and didnt fit any of our cases.
Great little mixer apart from that.
To much power? NEVER.

No pads?

I was afraid this was a common thing with soundcraft.

Cheers for the input guys!

Expected second hand value anyone?

2x M12 at my students' union, been severely mistreated for many years & only now has one developed a PSU fault. Very impressed they've survived this long!

I have one and it's awesome. Never failed, I prefer the Eq to Allen & Greif, but I susspect thats personal taste.
