Allen & Heath System 8 - 16-8-2

Allen & Heath System 8 mixers can be found reasonably easily in the free-ad's and I think they are one of the finest choices for a cheap affordable s/h mixer despite their age. Back in the day, just before the super-budget breakthru of the narrow format tape machines arrived from Fostex etc, 3 mixers ruled the earth for budget price studio's. The Studiomasters, the Soundcrafts and the Allen & Heaths. These 3 companies must have accounted for a good 80% of all budget studio mixers which were in use at that time, and today these mixers still rock for a super-sweet sound!.

Of all the system 8's released, the ones I used were almost all MKI models with the browny-green colour (although I did work for a while with a later grey Mk3.


[later grey style mkII/mkII style]

The System 8 mixers were a very popular desk as they were quite price-breaking at the time of release (82/83 for the first series), and quickly found a home in many studio's and pa systems offering quality facilities in a non-modular format, built in meter-bridge and more.

Don't think cos they are old they are not as 'good' as a modern mixer, the eq on these mixers is SO sweet, really really warm and fat, and tracks mixed on this desk seem to have really good definition...


System 8's are not small! - so you need a bit of space... but then that to me is half their charm, you get a big working area, with plenty of space between channels and nice chunky pots... all is laid out clearly and working with one is a breeze, they are VERY easy to understand for the newbies too because you don't have any cryptic routing & switching modes like found on so many compact modern mini-mixers!

Ok, so that's my experience of this mixer series, and i would not hesitate to use one again as a front-end for a PC digital system nowadays if I had the space. They might be a tad noisier (on paper) that a modern 'mini/compact' mixer, but the sound!!... the sound is so so sweet! - These would be perfect also for anyone seeking to setup a budget/midrange classic analog style studio to accompany a 16 track. (or it'd be cracking to use with a couple of sync'd ADAT's too!

Another cool thing is the extention module which like the earlier Studiomaster mixers from this period allowed you to bolt-on an additional 8 channels. The add-on module is rare tho, but you might be lucky to find one included with the original desk! - Also these mixers could be cascaded together to link two! - quite an inovative mixer at the time and when it came out as i say it was a real blockbuster seller offering superb sound and pro facilities at a cost-concious price. You might have seen these in budget 16 track studio's with mebbe an old Soundcraft Saturn or Brennel mini-8 or Tascam 8 track tape deck or whatever.


On the left you can see a System 8 channel strip.

System 8's have Balanced XLR's with phantom & inserts on all channels, and input pad (20db) for mic signals - 3 Aux sends, one pre-fade, one post-fade & one switchable pre/post. Pfl & Mute switch, peak led indicator and a long-throw 100mmm fader with a +10dB overtravel for getting extra input gain.

Output Routing is simple with the L/R & sub-group buttons down the bottom by the pan/fader. The mute switch makes it ideal for dub's and live dance mixing and there's no nasty popping or clicks when you use it.

The top Eq has selectable shelving 8/12k switch and the bass Eq had an 60/120hz shelving switch, top that with a nice sweep mid from 400hz-6khz and british design & quality components and the sound of these mixers really hums!

I used one in a reggea studio for a year or two I worked in and the tracks which resulted from various sessions in that time were really nice and warm and fat. The switchable top & bottom Eq shalving allows you to really tweak up the sound... Switch to 60hz for real ball-busting warm defined bass tweaking, or 120hz to work a bit higher up the range for gorgeous low-mid sweetness.. same with the tops, this eq is just so sweet and imo pisses on some of the supposedly 'British eq' clone mixers on the market today.
The Buss section has inserts on all outs & group/tape switching and you've got 2 aux sends on each buss. The buss channels can also function of course as basic returns for extra Aux return use or adding extra inputs (with no eq) which gives you a potential extra 8 channels on mix.

Master section has all the gumph, aux's & aux returns, pfl, monitoring, 1k slate tone, talkback, streo foldback etc etc, plus there's a headphone socket and a mic socket onboard to add a foldback mic. System 8 is a proper desk offering full functionality for all studio & live pa tasks with dedicated controls for everything.

Here is a System 8 (mk1 16-8-16) with the add-on 8 channel extention - sweet eh!




Here's some info from Allen & Heath's website.

The System 8 range was designed for multitrack recording or sound reinforcement. There were three different series of System 8 mixers: Marks I, II and III, each with its different models of input and output formats and each with different circuitry. The Mark I and II desks were a brown colour overall, and the Mark III was grey. The Mark I and Mark II models can be differentiated by the fact that the Mark II had faders with 100mm of travel plus an EQ Cut switch on each channel. The Mark I had faders with 90mm travel and no EQ Cut switches.

Glad to read the rave reviews of 'my' mixer!

My venerable Series 8 Mk 2 16-8-2 (Ser No: 1127) is now surplus to requirements, as all my mixing is now done on either the audio or video non-linear editors. It had become just a routeing centre - and a jolly big one at that! It's now been removed from my studio (on the edge of the North York Moors, UK), and is waiting for a new owner.

It's a good condition (although the faders would benefit from a bit of cleaning), and comes c/w user guide, schematics and full manual. It's been modified to PPMs on the main output meters, and a headphone socket on the front rail. Unfortunately it's missing one of the fader knobs - I thought it would turn up when I dismantled and re-jigged all my technical kit, but no luck. I've emailed Allen & Heath to see if a replacement is available.

THIS PIECE OF KIT IS TOO GOOD TO GO IN A SKIP! Does anyone know anyone who might be interested in buying it? Needs to be someone within easy reach of Yorkshire, of course - our postman isn't going to be interested in carrying it!

Email me at teeafit@teeafit.co.uk.

Further to my posting of 1/3/04, I'm advised by Allen & Heath that they can no longer supply the fader knobs. Does anyone have a spare one? Charcoal grey, with a white line.

The 'gap' quite spoils the look of it!

I own a System 8 Mk2 24-16-2, lovely beast of a thing.

I can't agree more with everything that has been said about this monster, I've enjoyed many trouble free years of use. The faders are still crystal and apart from a blown bulb on the bridge all is fine. It's cozy and boxed and looking for a new home.

I am based in the north west, and suffering from lack of space. I still have the original box for this and it needs a new home. Drop me an email to kick off any negotiations.

Cheers

I don't know if anyone will come across this, but I recently acquired a used mkIII version of this board. I love it, but I don't have the manual for it, and if there is anyone out there who has one, I would be willing to pay you something for it plus shipping. You can email me or call me at 512-762-2140. Thank you.

Just to say that I no I am no longer looking for one of these
desks as I have purchased a Soundcraft Spirit Studio, so do not wish to waste anyone's time. I have a Soundtracs Midi PC Series 24 for sale + a SECK 12-8-2, if anyone is interested.

Hi guys, just picked up a system 8 16-8-2 mk III in North Jersey from a guy who had the board shipped out from LA. he had a buddy wire together some old RCA transformers and got it to run the console. however, it does not turn on the phantom power, which i definitely need to get running. anyone got a spare power supply or a way to get phantom power with my power supply? i can email you the picture of it. thanks,

Purchased it a week ago from guitar center. Everyone was jealous when we were hauling the big daddy out of there!!!
got it home to discover there was a short. nothing worked! sent it back and just got it back fully reconditioned!!!!! NICE. A brand new vintage board!!!
This is thing is warm and totally flexy!!!

It looks bad ass in my studio and I'm fully integrating it to run reason and logic mix-downs.

I have the Allen & Heath System 8 16-8-2 that I used on many projects since I bought it in 1984. IMHO a well-though-out, warm, well-built mixer. I've replaced all the bridge lights but they're out again. I'm getting a 60hz hum probably from a bad power supply. I've retrofitted it with toggle switches on each of the 8 busses to select hi/lo attenuation (I forget the specs). I also added custom LED VU on the L/R busses. I've gone digital since early 2000's and no longer use the board. I would consider selling for a song or if someone can help me fix the power supply. Place a bid. I live near San Diego CA. Email me.

Hi

We use a system 8 mixer in our home studio and it is nice piece of kit that has worked well for years. We recently moved house however and there is now a crackle that enters the output sound whenever the input level (on any track) gets above a certain point. 100% sure it is the desk rather than anything else in the chain and it is not that we are using too much gain or a silly input level. Understand that I have provided very little detail here but does this sound familiar to anybody? Is this a characteristic of old age for these desks or has something maybe gone wrong in the move?

Would be very interested to hear any ideas people may have.

Many thanks,

Hi John,

Did you ever find a source for replacing power supply?
Mine got lost in our studio move and I feel like a dear friend.

Thanks,

Dan.

Hi,

Just picked up an A-H Sys 8 1616 mixer today. I have no idea how to
operate it. Does anyone have a manual for this thing? Thanks

You can download the manuals from AHB's website. Look in the Old Products section for the System 8 page.

I have recently picked up the A& H Series 8 Mark III sound board from a friend who had received it from her father and has been in storage.

Unfortunately, i do not have a power supply to turn it on and test it to see what condiiton it is in.

Does anyone have one or know where i can get one
thank you
