MFR# MZ-223

Product Description

The TASCAM MZ-223 Zone Mixer is a powerful multi-channel, multi-zone mixer housed in a compact 2U desgn, The TASCAM MZ-223 offers versatile multi-zone audio routing, mixing, and segregation of several audio sources simultaneously. Source content can include music, spoken word (microphone), phonograph, and more and are easily controlled via familiar sliders and assignment controls on the front panel. Designed for easy integration in virtually any system, the TASCAM MZ-223 is ideal for small format install applications such as moderate sized hotels, restaurants, meeting rooms, schools, or any situation that demands independently routed audio.

Flexible I/O

The MZ-223 allows multiple audio sources to be mixed, segregated, and routed to 3 independent zones or destinations using familiar volume sliders and assignment buttons. Input signals can be inserted via 5 audio channels, each consisting of 2 sets of unbalanced RCA stereo pairs. A total of 10 sets of RCA inputs are provided. Channels 1 and 2 can be set to accommodate phono-level signals for use with a turntable. In addition located conveniently on the front panel, 2 mic-compatible XLR inputs are available.

Multiple Zone Outputs

The independent 3-zone outputs each have a combination of balanced professional XLR or RCA unbalanced configurations for long runs or connection to common residential power amplifiers or speakers. This flexibility, for example, allows music to be routed to ZONE1, ambient noise or natural sounds to ZONE2, a separate music track or a voice announcement can be routed to ZONE3, while the convenient “Talkover” function will automatically lower any mixed channel source so the microphone can be heard while speaking.

Easy, Immediate Control

Familiar volume sliders, routing switches/buttons, EQ knobs, and mute buttons for the microphones make the MZ-223 simple and fast to operate and set up. There is even a master recording stereo output, which can send audio to an external recorder which makes event capturing easy. The MZ-223 delivers simple operation and maximum audio routing flexibility, all in a compact, affordable package.

Simple output adjustment

The volume can be adjusted individually for the three output lines. When installing multiple speakers in each area such as at a shop, public facility, or office, the volume for each can be controlled from a single unit. Each output has a stereo LED level meter. This allows you to check the volume balance of the entire system. You can also use the 3-band equalizer to adjust the tone for each area.

Simple channel operation

It is possible to switch the input source and select the output with a simple button operation, so there is no need for complicated changes to the wiring. Each channel has a fader control for adjusting the volume with a high degree of freedom. It is also possible to monitor the sound prior to fader processing using the PFL button.

MIC IN ideal for announcements

The front panel is equipped with two microphone inputs. It is possible to select the microphone output with a simple button operation. Moreover, the "Talkover" function automatically attenuates the BGM volume when microphone sound is input, making it easier to listen to the microphone sound, which is ideal for announcements at stores and other facilities. Tone adjustment is also possible using the 3-band equalizer.

In almost 20 years in Pro audio buying, never did I receive a unit so well packed and exactly as described. Works flawlessly. The whole process has been so smooth. I will never hesitate to do business with you guys in the future and will recommend you to everyone I know.

This was my first experience buying something from Vintage King (although I surf the "used" categories on the website frequently!), and, despite being on the other side of the world, I had absolutely no trouble and everything went very smoothly.

My experience with Vintage King was excellent. The order was here fast considering it was out of stock. The sales person had SKB send it to me directly and I couldn't have been more pleased.

From the minute I placed my order I was kept well-informed through each step in your process. Even though I was buying a comparatively modest piece of gear, your attention to detail made me feel like I was purchasing a six-figure mixing desk.
