24-channel inline mixer with 6 aux, 8 groups, 8 FX returns, 3 stereo inputs, 2U rack PSU, blah blah blah!!!!
Plenty of input channels: 24 + 24 + 8 stereo + 8 stereo ...........

UTILIZATION

Can be used for recording and mixing. Easy to use.
It has talkback, switchable solo-in-place / PFL (24 holes at the bottom give you access to the Solo/PFL switches for each channel).

SOUNDS

Best of all is the EQ, I didn't expect such an incredible quality. Listen to the sound of the EQ between 4 kHz and 6.3 kHz where it normally sounds awful!!! The EQ sounds very smooth with a nice bottom end.
The preamp is also great. If you crank it the sound becomes fuller without adding noise, you only get a nice distortion,
the mixing console breathes... The signal summing is good
even though the main output is via balanced phone jacks, which don't seem to be as reliable as a pair of XLR's!
Real analog sound.

OVERALL OPINION

Very good manufacturing. The knobs have a very nice feel, much better than the faders. The EQ is fabulous.
This console would be perfect, even if the price went up a bit, if it had:

- a complete balanced architecture
- real good faders
