    It resembles like a Mackie with a mask on.

      I think it's a bit closer to the G2s than the Mackie's, don't you agree?

      So it's got 2 inputs, a balanced XLR and an unbalanced 1/4" as opposed to the Mackie having a single balanced XLR (the G2s having 2 unbalanced 1/4" and a balanced XLR). It's got the 2 band adjustable EQ like the G2s which is nice, and a 15" Low Frequency. Do the Mackie's have a 15" or a 12" low?

      It seems like a cool system, I'd like to hear them.

        The Mackies have a 12.

            Hey Binary...

            The #2 and 3 inputs on the G2 are balanced... they are just 1/4" phono inputs to be used with either regular or TRS jacks.

            Only input 1 can be switched from mic to line, however, and it uses a XLR connector.

              I don't know what a TRS jack is. What is that?

              I thought that balanced was just XLR, because it has the ground. Is that completely wrong?

                TRS stands for Tip/Ring/Sleeve, which is the configuration used for a balanced cable connector of the 1/4" type. It looks just like a 1/4" headphone connector. So the 3 pins you see in a XLR connector correspond to the Tip (end), Ring (middle shaft section) and Sleeve (base shaft section) parts of TRS.

                They are both balanced connectors, it's just the XLR is the more robust type.
