Endless Possibilities

Ergonomics and ease of use were key design considerations during the development of the QU-16. Allen & Heath has drawn on their more than 40 years of experience designing mixing surfaces to ensure the QU-16 is both approachable by novices and comfortable for veterans. Knob per function control in the Superstrip gives you the capability to react quickly in any situation and the recallable AnalogiQ preamps provide input gain control in 1dB noise free steps thanks to zero crossing detection circuitry.
