Allen & Heath launches ZED Power 1000 at NAMM 2015


Allen & Heath has unveiled the ZED Power 1000, a 2 x 500W powered mixer that has been designed to withstand the rigours of the road as well as supplying top quality audio. Created for gigging musicians, schools, PA and AV rental companies, hotels and conference centres, ZED Power 1000 is the professional choice for power and performance.

Allen & Heath ZED 1000

Built to Allen & Heath’s rigorous standards to ensure a long life in the toughest of live sounds environments, all channels are on individual, vertical circuit boards and all rotary controls are secured to the front panel with a steel nut to guard against impact damage. The output can be set to feed Left and Right speakers, or Mono LR plus Foldback, or Mono LR plus Sub. ZED Power 1000 has a built in, two channel, high power class D amplifier, coupled to a super-reliable linear power supply. This combination provides the best of both worlds—the cool running efficiency of class D amplification allied to the proven robustness and peak headroom of a toroidal power supply, with the ability to cope with high demand surges.

About Author

MNJ has been writing articles, reviews and blogs for the DV online magazine for the last five years or so. Although he has been playing for longer than he cares to remember and is now officially an 'oldie', he is still mad for all things guitar related and when not busy in his studio he's learning new songs, practising bluegrass guitar, painting his house and taking his dogs out. If banished to a desert island and forced to take only one guitar he'd take a Les Paul. Actually, make that several Les Pauls, a Strat, a Tele, an ES-335, a vintage Martin and some boutique amps. Battery powered obviously.
