Vintage Quad 8 Pacifica / Ventura vs A Design re-issue

Hi Guys

Just wanted to see if anyone out there has compared the vintage Quad 8 Pacifica / Ventura with the A Design re-issues.

I know there's a lot of love for the A Design re-issues but the reason I'm interested is that I have a couple of vintage Pacifica channels that I was thinking of racking. It's relatively expensive to have a tech rack these (in the order of $1000) so trying to ascertain if it's worthwhile.

I'd be using these for tracking (mostly electronic music) FYI.

Would appeciate your feedback.
