The PSC M4-mkII is a staple in the ENG sound department. With a couple of refinements implemented after its first production run, the M4-mkII is proving to be reliable and user-friendly. Using surface mount components, the 'mkII is about 10% smaller and lighter than the NGS-X4, but the remaining space is well used. The most notable unique feature is its internal battery compartment, which is capable of taking an NP-1 style battery, or a magazine (included) loaded with 8 AA cells. The power source is brought out to two 4-pin Hirose connectors that make 1.5A of power available for accessory gear such as wireless receivers. This For a single output/return quick connector, the 'mkII uses the more standard 10-pin Hirose with pin-outs identical with other mixers using this connector (though one production run had 2 output pins reversed, creating bewilderment). The Lexan overlay labeling gives the mixer an almost toy-like appearance, but offers much greater protection and longevity than traditional silk-screened finishes.
