I have worked on a couple of vintage large format consoles before and love the results, but those places had a maintenance staff...
It doesn't require maintenance. Ask the CBC guys. Maybe the power supplies but they are generic. There are no mechanical switches on it to go screwy and they are too new to need recapping. I spoke with the fellow who ran the Winnipeg one extensively and he had nothing but positive things to say about it mechanically and sonically. They were bought new.
It's no 8068 but it does a lot of good shit.
There was an issue with the eq mounts but mine was addressed as i am sure the one you are looking at was too.
The thing is it couldn't have been better maintained, cbc do shit right.
I'm excited as hell about mine.
Pm me if you need any specific info.
BTW are you sure it doesn't have automation?
I thought all the Elites did.
