I love mine a shit ton. It has everything that I need in one box. The pre's are great, the EQ is superb and the routing options are pretty amazing. I got mine for about $1300 from amazon new. For that price, there is no way I couldn't have found a better deal. I still do some ITB mixes when the musicians need a little bit of surgery, but when the takes are great, mixing on this board becomes a true joy. My only issue with this board is the fact there are no direct out's for each channel so if I wanted to use this board with say an 8 track tape machine, I could.
