The origin of the RODEC MX180 Original goes back as far as 1986, when the introduction of the MX-18 set a standard for many years to come for numerous professional users all over the world.

With 18 inputs, 2 master outputs, multiple rec outputs, triple tone control, PFL, talk-over & a construction quality,
sound performance and reliability that most manufacturers could only dream of the MX-18 was an instant success in most major markets in Europe, Asia an Canada.

True to the Hifi roots of the brand this mixer used first class components, modular set-up and rigid construction to make sure that this mixer could withstand the most fierce conditions in which a professional unit can in many cases be used.

Although the basic lay-out and construction manner have not visibly changed over the years, the MX180 Original is in fact in 2009 a fifth generation MX180, which in no way resembles the original design as far as electronics are concerned.

Of course the product is still being manufactured entirely in Belgium, and of course we still use first class components with faders still being fixed individually to the front plate of the mixer, but of course technology has also evolved dramatically over the last 25 years.

So with the basic philosophy of construction quality, reliability and sound performance in mind we now introduced the MX180 Original, as the current climax of our analogue developments.

Sound performance remains ‘analogue’ with dynamics, detail and ambiance at a level which we have not been able to achieve before, and a signal to noise ratio which can be compared to many Hifi or High End products, which come nowhere near the complexity demanded from a mixer with such complete features.

With still 18 inputs, double symmetrical master outputs, multiple record outputs, effects loop and separate microphone channel the MX180 Original will remain the flagship for all analogue RODEC lovers for many years to come.

Appreciated for their serviceability and modular set-up this mixer is also very much appreciated by any technician, who will in most case be able to service a unit on-the spot, which makes it very attractive for night club owners and users alike.

In a nutshell, the RODEC MX180 Original offer more than 55 years of High-End research, design and development to any professional user and lover of analogue music. It has been a reference products for many years, and although a new ‘progressive’ range has meanwhile been introduced it will remain this reference for many years to come in the pure analogue field.

The ‘Progressive’ range is a completely different story within a very similar philosophy, please read further with the other products ...
