    I'm in the process of downsizing my live support gear. I really do not need a 16 channel mixer and want to go down to a a 1U or 2U rackmountable mixer with eq built in. I'm not over concerned about the number of channels. I need 6 channels (normally 2 channels).

    Need XLR and 1/4" inputs and XLR outputs.

    Suggestions?

    Not much out there going to fit that bill. You're asking for a lot of features in a pretty tight package. The only thing that I can think of that comes close is the Ashly MX508. It's 3 rack spaces and the only EQ is on the channels, but it's a quality unit.

    Do you want it front rack mounted, or would you be ok with something top rack mounted like a regular mixer?

    Front rack like the Ashly above. I hear ya speakerjones, I'd done some googling earlier and didn't come up with much. I just hate lugging gear around for needing so few channels. Would love to go as compact as a 4u rack unit with mixer/compressor/power conditioner.

    Ashly MX-508 - it's 3RU, but it's a really great mixer.

    I got one for $200, used.

    They seem to be more line mixers without some of the functionality I'm looking for. The Ashley seems to be the closest ticket.
