Anleon MX200 Review - Works Perfectly for Connecting Two PCs to One Set of Speakers

Here's a quick little review about an audio mixer, but before we get into it, check out this gallery of images first!

Anleon MX200

★★★★★ (5 out of 5)

  • Build quality
  • Plenty of ports
  • Volume knobs feel good
  • On/Off power button
  • Wish it came with some adhesive rubber feet
  • Instructions are a bit simplistic (but realistically this is a simplistic device)
  • Brand name (Not really a con but I've never really heard of Anleon before)

Other Thoughts
Overall I am satisfied with this purchase and it works exactly as expected for my needs. The only thing I wish it came with was some adhesive rubber feet but those are cheap enough to purchase separately that it's not a big issue at all.

Full Review
I wanted to find a "proper" way to connect both of my computers to one set of speakers for simultaneous audio playback. This could be achieved with an extremely cheap 3.5mm Y-splitter but I had read that going with a solution like that was not good and could potentially damage your speakers. So, when shopping for a stereo line mixer I saw the Rolls MX51s Mini Mix 2 referenced a lot and for the price it seemed to be a decent option. I was originally going to purchase that unit but then I randomly came across this Anleon Line Mixer in the recommendations.

It seemed almost identical to the Rolls option but one thing it also included vs the Rolls was an on/off power button. The lack of a power toggle was the only complaint I had seen people mention with the Rolls option so I decided to save the $5 vs the Rolls and try this one out. I had never really heard of Anleon before but I figured I would give it a shot since it had that extra feature vs the Rolls option. I am happy to report that it works flawlessly for my needs.

Currently I have 2 computers hooked up… 1 via 3.5mm and 1 via RCA from a Schiit Modi 2 Uber. Both feeds come through clean and I think this mixer actually amps the audio output a bit as well. I cannot comment on the XLR input because I don't have a Mic that can use that nor do I have a need to use it currently. For what it is, this device is a bit on the "expensive" side, but I would rather have my mixed audio solution be proper than have the potential of damaging my speakers.
