You sure should not have posted this if you are really interested in this console. lol...

You have just notified just about everyone in the world who could/would bid against you... that indeed... they should bid against you.

heh heh heh

Yeah, Upon first look I said Wow! But only 20 line inputs, plus I'm not too sure about the mic pre situation. The add reads 4 German mic pres, does that mean there are only four mic pres or are there four German pres in addition to the console pres? The 20 eq's sound interesting. I guess you should call and ask questions and if the answers please you, the poster above is right, you better bid quick before the word gets out! 35K for a line mixer, whatever the history may be seems a little steep to me, but someone here at GS may scoop it who knows!!! good luck!!.....peace?

This has been talked about over at Pro Sound Web under the Helios section.

Duncan's looking for 35K for it. A bit rich for a 20 input line mixer however the EQ's are original type 69's. Probably needs a re-cap as well.

If you could eventually get mic pre's it might be cool. Too bad it still doesn't have the F760 compressors that are show in the picture.

Oh well someone with dough should grab her and bring her back from the great beyond. They'z only so many that was made...

Hey Everyone...No, I'm not trying to sell it. As far as letting out a secret...no worries on my end. I'm trying to find out a few things about it. When you speak with someone trying to sell something you get a certain perspective. I'm trying to find more of an unbiased perspective from people on this board.

Tony Arnold posts here sometimes...I wonder if mic amps could be added to the eq modules. They appear to be the same size as the black mic pre/eq.

The cool factor in owning this board would be sent to orbit BUT just like someone said above...$35k is a chunk and I'm not a rich guy with an audio museum. I would want to work with the console a lot.
