    One could link up to 16] MX381 Smart Mixers together.

    With MX351 and MX341, you could link a potential unlimited amount.

    Therefore, if you would like to link three MX341 Smart-Mixers together for a total of 12 channels, that will work.

    The MX381 will NOT link to either MX351 or MX341.
