Just slightly larger than our 1202-VLZ3, the Mackie 1402-VLZ3 offers everything its little brother has-plus two additional mic/line channels, faders instead of knobs, and a few extra Master Section features.

These new pres offer incredibly low noise, with individual mic pre THD below 0.0007%, and overall mixer THD less than 0.0025%.
