Do You Remember? Glensound MX6/3 Mixer

Glensound MX6/3

A Glensound press release says that Manx Radio has used one of its original Glensound mixers for the last time after 33 years of service. Manx Radio is a commercial radio station on the Isle of Man and was established in 1960. The station ordered several MX6/3 mixers in 1977. The mixer also featured a DK20 mono monitoring pod that has been used in a modified configuration to give a mix of headphone feeds to the commentators and backroom staff. Manx Radio has a collection of MX6/3s in various states, having raided two for spare parts to keep its main pair operable and on air. These six-channel mixers are used daisy chained together to give 12 channels that are used for the broadcasting of the Manx Grand Prix races on the Isle of Man. The mixers were used for the final time at the end of August 2010 for the Manx Grand Prix.
