I'm also frustrated by the A&H and Mackie "14 channel mixers" who actually have 6 (!) mono channels, so actually 10 channels. I only need occasionally 1 or 2 stereo inputs. 4 stereo inputs is an overkill for me and it makes me look at higher mixers for 16 channels for no reason. Also Mackie has added a bus path for any channel you choose, which is AMAZING. Can't see this feature in any other mixer on this price category. Weird!
The way channel count is described has always been a bit of a con, you have to examine the spec carefully.
Mackie have this bad habit of cutting off the aux sends if you use the Alt Out on their smaller mixers, AFAIK no other mixers do this.
Routing? My Behringer can route any channel to any output, or combination of outputs.
Mackie and Behringer offer the best and most flexible options regarding routing on budget mixers, Yamaha, Soundcraft, A&H, all have routing restrictions on their smaller mixers.
