Re: Best high quality,super compact mixer?

I prefer the sound of the 90's - 00's era Studiomaster stuff. I have 4 small Studiomasters now as I don't have room for the Allen & Heath cmc24. I submix 3 down to 1 for room monitoring and then drop tracks 1 to 4 at a time into the box with a furman patchbay between what ever I'm recording and the room mix..

Mackie 1402 VLZ2 mixer is finally ready for the dustbin.

I've also begun to notice that there are a bunch of new
highly compact and lightweight multiple pre-amp mixers
on the market now.

What do you use and how satisfied are you with it's use?

I have to say, in advance,  that Berhinger reverse engineered
Mackies and have put out similar products very inexpensively
for many years.    Where they saved money, however , was not
on the looks or features but on the pre-amps themselves.

Berhingers, from my experience are considerably noisier than
the Mackie's they copy, so really high quality pre-amps are very important
to me. t

Ideally, I'd love to have 6 pre-amps in a board I purchase.

Light weight, high quality and small footprint are the highest of my priorities.

Your respective thoughts?

thanks, in advance
