In June of 2016, I saw a B-stock Mackie ProFX12v2 from Mackie Direct (Mackie's E-bay store) at a pretty good price, $190 W/free shipping. I thought that would make a nice backup or small gig mixer. I hit the buy it now button and when it got here, I peaked in the box, but never even took it out of the plastic bag. Fast forward to yesterday. I have some "unplugged" gigs coming up and decided to take it for a test drive. DOA. The power light and FX display light up, but that's it. No level lights, no sound, nothing. And yes I tried different cables, powered speakers, mics, channels and even the aux out- it is dead. I called Mackie, and the 90 day warranty is long gone. The part (PCB) that the fellow on the phone figures it needs is $220, if I want to change it myself..... nope. It's my fault, I know mackie's reputation for reliability, as we have a bunch of it, and had plenty of failures, yet I was lured by a bang for the buck deal. I should have taken it for a test run as soon as I got it. I really believe it went in the box faulty, A) it was b stock, so it already didn't make the cut the first time, and B) the shipping box was in perfect shape, and it was well packaged, so I don't feel it happened in shipping. Could it have? Sure, but seems unlikely. The fact that the warranty was only 90 days should have been a red flag too. So I guess the moral of the story is plug it in when it lands, or be prepared to trash can a brand new piece of gear.
