Advantages:

  • Good manufacturing quality.
  • The faders have a good level of resistance.
  • XLR and 6.35mm support.
  • Dedicated mute button for each channel.
  • Microphone input and headphone output on the front.
  • XLR on the back for a tidier workspace.
  • Low noise input.

The inconvenients:

  • Non-motorized sliders.
  • RGB cannot be synchronized with other devices.
  • Shiny areas pick up dust and fingerprints too easily.
  • Most, if not all, of the key features depend on Synapse.
  • Almost £100 more than the Go XLR mini for essentially the same features.

KitGuru says: While the Razer Audio Mixer doesn’t offer much over the GoXLR Mini, it does give Razer fans a way to streamline their aesthetic. In my testing it performed well, but I’m not convinced it’s worth £100 over the popular GoXLR mini. However, in terms of performance and operation, I can recommend it.
