Choosing between audio mixers. Advice please.

Post by ingeborgdot » Sun Aug 11, 2013 1:01 pm

Mackie 802-VLZ3
Mackie 802-VLZ4
Yamaha MG102C
This is going to be used to help out with our football streaming. It will be used to work out a situation where we need a spotter to help our analyst along with a spotter mic, broadcaster mic, and 2 cough switches.
The mixer will then feed the usb device into the computer for the audio.
Is the Mackie worth the extra $100? Thanks.

I have a Mackie 1402-VLZ that I've used for years on my internet station 24/7 and it is built like a tank. I can't say for the newer ones but this one is a good one.

I prefer Yamaha to recent Mackie consoles. Better built, more reliable. I like older Mackie consoles before they cheapened them to compete with Behringer ripoffs of Mackie original designs.
