    I have no idea is this works - I'd just like to get rid of it. Everything in photos is yours . . . make me an offer.
    Pick up near Madison, Wisconsin.

    This was an incredible development when introduced in 1982 iirc. Amazing it still works.

    Even better, the Mantrix II had the secret pole on one of its internal DIP switches that would allow you to enable the Mantrix IIS features being test-marketed by preferred users prior to being officially released with the Mantix IIS badge emblazoned on the front panel.
    Truly a ground breaking product. [I still salivate while recalling the first Mantix II I lit shows on.] (Maybe I'm just salivating since my alarm is calling me to dinner.)
    Toodleoo!

    2001 key was such a kick till 1999. But those mini-xlr 4pin plugs were such a pain.

    We have a pair of 12 channel Mantrix 2s that get used regularly. Our dimmers are still AMX. We have an Avo Pearl Expert at FOH that goes through a Fleenor converter. But backstage and the Black box downstairs still have the Mantrix. It's a great little desk. I wouldn't want to run a ballet or rock show off of it. But for lights up/lights down, or shows with only a couple of looks it does the job quite nicely.

    Make an offer ?, you mean for like money ?

    I’ll trade you for a Colortran Prestige.

    In all seriousness, maybe contact ETC, they collect vintage gear like this, they might give you something for it and shippings easy.

    I still see Mantrix and Strand 300 consoles on ebay for more money than I would pay for one but if you think you need it bad enough then they are there.
