newer studer vista desks running on infinity core

anyone around here with extensive experience working on newer studer vista digital desks (such as vista 5m3, v, x) running on a single (or on redundant dual) infinty core(s)? besides the obvious differences to the score live processor, anything worth mentioning?

i might get a chance to bump up my inventory of smaller vista desks with a mighty vista v 42-fader desk for a ridiculous price and would like to read about your experience - any comments from pro-users are highly welcomed!

To be honest, the new Studers are buggy and we are not going to buy one ever again.

Since the old studer guys are gone I suspect a new team is kind of reverse engineering the code.

The new software, also the new cpu cores are still the old software with a slightly different look.
I do not feel there is any real innovation at all.

The first time I worked on a vista with cpu processing it had a bug where all crosspoints would disappear graphically.

Come on. If you release software with such a critical bug I can not take you seriously as a broadcast company.

Well, practically the new desk are exactly the same as the old desks.
But with more bugs potentially.

Yes, while we still have 4 vista desks in daily use we will only buy new Lawos.

I must say I am quite impressed with the SSL system T though.

i didn't get to work on a ssl t yet but on ssl live desks: i don't like the design/surface/operating much but they sound quite good and i'm quite impressed with the new stagetec avatus...

however, all of these desks are far beyond what i'm willing to spend while i might get the vista v for a ridiculous price; therefore and due to the fact that my three smaller vistas (and those larger desks i've been working with) have been running without issues for years, it be a shame to let it go!

i was hoping to get to test the desk today but it'll be next week...

that's what i'm currently looking at (see pic), a vista v (not 5) running on redundant infinity 400 cores; i'll get to check it extensively during the next week(s) to detect possible errors in existing configurations...
