I'm looking at purchasing the Behringer Xenyx 1002 audio mixer for an amateur home studio setup in a small 4m x 4m room at home.
I would like to connect a MacBook pro via USB to the mixer, an Ovation Celebrity guitar, as well as an Alesis DM6 drumkit, and later an electric piano and perhaps a microphone or two.
I don't have a super expensive speaker setup and being a small room it doesn't need much. I want to repurpose 4x 30Watt 3Ω speakers and a subwoofer from a Samsung 5.1 surround sound DVD player system I have laying around.
Can I feed the output from the mixer into AUX into my Samsung DVD player to get the sound playing through it?
Alternatively, can I solder some audio jacks onto the speakers and plug them directly into the mixer?
Last question, can the mixer both play and record audio through the USB interface at the same time on a Mac.
