Your opinion! I never liked any Akai's until I heard the 6000. The rest have always left me cold. I'd take a Z8 if one turned up cheap, but I like the 16 analogue outs on the S6000 and 128 poly (and the sound!). The Z8 has a cool remote but still a small display. The 6000 display really is a superb thing.Quite a few things that could be considered "better" on the S6000. And like I said earlier, they are cheap as hell sometimes. Locally one for €100 here.
No Z8 or Z4's on ebay.co.uk now but 4 S6000's and 4 S5000's, so I think it's easier to find the S series.
So I see them as quite different products. I sit at my console and have 16 channels coming up on my desk and the 6000 is just a monster in that situation.
