BBC MX/18 4-channel passive mixer unit for use with the OBA/8 amplifier, 1938. The BBC number on the outer case is MX/18/552, but the BBC number on unit itself is MX/18/494.

It was used extensively for both radio and early TV outside broadcasts and continued in service well after its successor (the OBA/9) was introduced.
