What??? I've used my Mackie 1202 for over 5+ years of HARD live use and
never had one problem ever. It's been used and seriously abused and has
never so much has needed a cleaning let alone a pot replacement. Same
with my original 1604. Can't speak to the new ones but the original 1202
has been the best mixer I have ever used.
Perhaps you got a bum or seriously damaged unit? I would highly
recommend a 1202 over a roland M160. not that those are bad units but
they are not a "tank" IMO. the 1202 IS.
Just my $ .02 Loop on!
