So much gear, so little time... For your consideration, offered here is a beautiful BBC British analog console/mixer by Calrec. Build like a tank. Sold as is with no warranty as seen in our pictures. The unit has been fully tested and working fine with two minor issues described at the bottom of this listing. 

Here are the features: Calrec Minimixer II 20:4:4 in real good shape. Low noise  with a beefy tone, thanks to the Lundahl transformers on the outputs and very usable stereo compressors on both group and master channels.
Fully modular. Built like a tank! There is no noise coming out of the unit as there is no fan required. Completely silenced operation within the same room you work in!

Originally a broadcast mixer, which makes it great for mixing and a little cumbersome for production/recording, but it's doable thanks to the two stereo outputs and three AUX outputs, plus monitor output.

  • 24 channels (20 mono, 2 stereo on Group bus direct inputs), two stereo Master outputs (M1 and M2), each with its own sweet sounding stereo compressor.
  • The mono channels are shielded and switchable between mic and line.
  • No EQ on this version but one can find other modules to be fitted down the road with stereo or mono channels featuring nice sounding EQs.
  • All mono channels have three sends, switchable pre/post fader (Aux 1, Aux 2, and stereo Aux 3).
  • All channels have pan.
  • Master section has test oscillator, built in talk back mic and a some monitor routing.
  • All inserts and direct outs are located on the dsub50's (cables not included)
  • Most features (sends, pan) are switchable.
  • All diodes are working. A cool green "on" diod lights up when you move the fader over infinity quiet. All channels have peak diodes as well as in/out pan.
  • Speaking of faders - they are smooth Penny and Giles - the best industry of the late 1990s offered!
  • And a cool feature are the fully balanced and great sounding Lundahl transformers on the outputs!

You will find Minimixer II parts on auction sites. Right now it's rack mountable.

Two minor issues not impacting mixer's functionality to be aware of:

The AUX 3 stereo output's right channel is about 6dB less than the left channel when a mono signal is fed in - this is easily compensated by gain and fader level on each mono channel.  

The VU meters are working fine most of the time, albeit at times all yellow diodes light up all together and the monitor's switch knob needs to be pressed a few times for this to go away (as seen on the last picture). The new owner may consider getting the VU meter serviced, although I suspect cleaning the knobs inside the VU meter may fix the issue.

This has been our backup mixer as we already own one like it (albeit with different modules fitted) in our professional home studio facility (as seen on one of the pics) when purchased some 4-5 years ago. It's been fully tested by me before this listing went up (about six hours of work).

Selling only because our main mixer has never needed any servicing for the past 12 years. These are built to last!
