ARS MODEL 9000 Tabletop Rotary Mixer.

Not sure if this has been mentioned here before...

Taken from: http://www.junodownload.com/plus/201...-to-the-table/

MODEL9000



Alpha Recording Systemsí latest creation condenses their craft into a four-channel tabletop mixer.

Itís been a landmark year for Japanese manufacturer Alpha Recording Systems with their MODEL4100 and MODEL6700 mixers entering the increasingly competitive rotary market with widespread support. As we reported earlier this year, the latter mixer in particular showed off where the priorities of the designers lie, with the emphasis on sound quality rather than second-rate effects-driven gimmicks. Youíll be lucky to find anything as flashy as a channel meter on these streamlined units, even on the hefty six-channel 6700. What was noticeable about the previous ARS creations was that they were designed to be rack-mounted, no doubt a nod to the professional or high-end market such specifications are aimed at.

Considering the apparent demand for rotary mixers amongst bedroom hobbyists, it makes sense then that ARS has seen fit to deliver a more modest table-top version. The MODEL9000 sports four channels with three-band EQ and isolation, an overall master EQ, plus the effect sends and a return for outboard processing. Thereís little more to the mixer than that, other than the voluptuous appeal of those rotary knobs and an assurance of build quality over fancy features, and it should see ARS gain a footing into the wider DJ mixer market.

Alpha Recording Systems will release the MODEL9000 soon.

according to their webshop, the 4100 costs around € 2000,- and the 6700 costs about € 5400,- so i guess the 9000 will be somewhere in the middle. € 2700,- to € 3000,- maybe?

9000 design wise looks like ARS is under pressure to compete with E&S.. sorry

The 4100 is still better than E&S400 soundwise or is this just a myth? I have never seen a used 4100 for sale in 7 years in here or somewhere else.. it seems most of them go out to clubs/professionals, hardly anybody in Europe uses them private?

@daswadan do not forget about +20% custom duties in Germany

I'd go with the digital Rane, too, for that price.

atf104, where are the rear connection pics on yours?
