The mixer can be powered by either six internal ‘AA’ batteries (battery runtime is approximately nine hours with meter illumination and phantom power switched off) or an optional 12V DC external supply with locking 4-pin Hirose connector. A ballistic nylon carrying case is included with the mixer which weighs 1.35kg without batteries.
