The ML5000 is a fitting flagship for the range, satisfying those loyal Allen & Heath customers who wanted a console with the complete professional tool set. They really set out to change the rules for VCA desks with this console, forever raising the pro audio industry’s price/performance expectations.

From its enhanced PAFL facilities to its sidecar and dual power supply options, ML5000 is clearly capable of competing for touring work against old-style large format desks costing far, far more. The ML5000 is a dual function, LCRplus, 8 group, 16 aux, 12x8 matrix, VCA console. Frame sizes range from 32+4 to 48+4 channels, with sidecar expansion to 96+4 channels. With such exceptional sound quality, it’s an engineer’s dream!
NEW: There is now a ‘B’ Option available with first 4 mono channels to the right of the master section replaced with 4 stereo channels.
