We're looking to upgrade our mixer to 16 channel, and was wondering what you thought about the VLZPro compared to the CFX 16 that I can get at the same price. Effects built in are a plus for me.

Thanks for your time.

I have not used the CFX model (it's recent). I use the VLZ Pro often. The VLZ Pro has a higher list price. It looks like the main tradeoff is that the VLZ Pro has 16 better mic preamps and the CFX has effects (but only 12 mic pres).

Try these deals on them:

Hope that helps, and good luck!
