    I picked up this USB powered mixer on wish dot com, that arrived yesterday. With a USB Power Bank Battery, this mixer is usable off the grid, without AC power. Channels 1 and 2 can be assigned +48V phantom power, affording condenser microphones and my LR Baggs Para Acoustic DI box with active preamplifier to be directly powered from from the mixer. The USB/AUX/BlueTooth 3RD Stereo Channel has it's own independent bass and treble tone controls, allowing equalization on the BlueTooth Channel, which has been a highly requested feature for the Bose S1 Pro battery powered PA System. This mixer can also be assigned to be used as a recording studio mixer to input a PC/laptop. This mixer will also accept the USB audio output from a laptop or computer. I have been experimenting using the 1/8” headphone output of this mixer into the Channel 3 1/8” input of my Bose S1 Pro with outstanding results! I've included the owners manual here, so y'all can determine if this can remedy y'all dilemmas. The photo of this mixer with my Behringer 1002B battery powered mixer will show y'all it's compact footprint. This mixer handily fits in the top storage compartment of my Bose S1 Pro backpack, leaving plenty of room for cables, microphones, DI boxes and accessories.

    The mixer's delay effect is definitely high quality!

    [SIZE=4]I've owned this USB powered mixer for several weeks now, that I ordered on Wish Dot Com. It said 6 weeks before delivery, but arrived less than two weeks after I ordered it. It has true, switchable +48V Phantom Power for condenser microphones on channel 1 and channel 2. Channel 1 & channel 2 are both combination 1/4" phone jacks/XLR balanced jacks. Channel 3 has a built-in assignable BlueTooth receiver. Channel 3 can also receive it's USB MP3 input from a laptop computer, stereo 1/4" phone jack inputs and stereo RCA jack inputs and outputs. All 3 channels have gain, treble, bass, effects and volume controls with red LED's that flash when the signal peaks. There are delay and repeat knobs for the built in high quality digital delay effect, that is mild and sounds more like a quality reverb. There are 2 sets of yellow and red LED's above the 1/8" headphone jack that indicate distortion of the main outputs of the mixer. This mixer will output stereo through the main 1/4" phone jacks, stereo through the stereo 1/8" headphone jack and stereo MP3 through the switchable MicroUSB jack on the back of the mixer, affording this mixer the capability of being used as a high quality recording mixer through recording software on a desktop or laptop computer. This mixer can also record to USB storage. I used a 16A USB Power Bank to power this mixer into a set of earbuds using the mixer's BlueTooth receiver 3rd channel feature at occasionally peak flashing channel and main LED's overnight in our hallway closet and the USB Power Bank Battery still had over 75% available power, as indicated by the LED's on the USB Power Bank. The bass and treble controls on the 3rd BlueTooth channel of this mixer truly address the port noise concerns of DJ's, when using BlueTooth with the Bose S1 Pro. I attempted to post a video on YouTube this weekend, but an arthritis flareup in my left fingering hand botched that from working out on an acoustic electric guitar 12 bar blues shuffle. Most of what I perform now is on an 'ukulele, as a result of this arthritis.

    I just bought a 6 channel mixer with 6 XLR inputs or 6 1/4" balanced inputs for $75. I was using a Behringer X-Air 12 WiFi mixer with 4 XLR combo inputs and 8 1/4, 2 are Hi Z, but the WiFi kept getting interference, so I decided to go with a no WiFi. It's only 13.5" x 13.5" x 2" compact.

    Dan, I'm really enjoying the features and versatility of this mixer that I always power with a USB Power Bank. The true +48V phantom power is an exclusive feature I've yet to see on any other battery powered mixer. My Behringer Xenix 1002B battery powered mixer has phantom power, but it's +23 V, which will power most condenser microphones, but not all.

    That looks like a nice mixer, Kohan Mike. Can it be operated on battery power?
