Thanks for all the responses so far everyone.  Quick question...how do you deal with any feedback issues with units such as these given the lack of eq?

Looks like a few options:

1) turn the level down
2) use an EQ on the channel inserts (if the model has them)
3) use an EQ on the main outputs

If you absolutely can't have anything else connected, turning down is your only option.

Greg,

Thanks for the responses.  They are what I assumed.  I guess my main things was to keep things as compact as possible.  Looking at the price of some of the suggested units and the need to possibly add eq or other outboard effects it almost makes more sense to go the route of the x32 rack.

Digital, yes. Behringer, no.

Look at the QSC Touchmix 8 coming out this fall.

I'm looking for a single space rack mixer for a compact ceremony sound systems at weddings.  Most of the events consist of 2-3 lav wireless mics and an ipod for music. 

The units I have stumbled upon so far are:

Rane MLM42S.  Seems like a solid option.

Peavey Sanctuary Series S-4.  Not really to familiar with Peavey mixers but the feature set looks great.  Not sure how good the automix feature is.

Anyone have any experience with those two or have any other options?

I do not have any first hand experience with recent Peavey products, the Sanctuary series was created after I left, but I designed Peavey's first automatic mixer while I was working there ('85-2000) and that Peavey AM used the Dugan gain sharing algorithm (Dan's patent had recently expired).

So I suspect AM from Peavey since then to also use the good gain sharing algorithm.

That doesn't fit in the 1U rack space requirement very well at all, although it is nice and lightweight.

The X32 rack and a few wireless receivers in a rack makes for an extremely compact and solid system.  For 2-3 lavs, you can easily control it from the screen.  Add an iPad for more detailed control if you want.  Put a piece of tape over the name badge if you don't like it.

So tell me...

How do you fit a 3- rack space X-32 Rack into a single rack space?

Easy! Hydraulic press.

Well, considering the OP said:

"I'm looking for a single space rack mixer for a compact ceremony sound systems at weddings.  Most of the events consist of 2-3 lav wireless mics and an ipod for music. "

You could just throw out all the excess capacity of the X32 and the remainder would fit in half a rack space.
