flirting with 02R 96k

Hi friends! I am close to a big dilemma
I have a PT TDM Mix system running under OS 9.2.2, PT 5.1.1 with nice plugins on a G4 800 Quciksilver and so. I do not use more than 32 tracks, very rarely I reach 40 tracks, maybe once a year!!

I am not very satisfied with the sound of my 02R/01V. I do not have budget to upgrade to PT HD and to better console/mic pres either. I sometmes record up to simultaneous 20 tracks with my Camerata/Horn Band projects.

I have been very surprised with the new features of the new 02R 96K. I am a console guy, not very into mousing automation, although PT automix is much more faster to work with....

What have been your impressions with this new console?
I have already read all the features and so. Are the mic pres a big leap from the previous model?
I tend to upgrade the console not the mix system..

what are your opinions?
BTW.. this forum has been a big discovery to me!
Nice people, advices and so!

As an old O2R user the desk looks really good and the pres are meant to be a vast improvement, I'd say skip it and go for HD & REALLY good pres, etc..

I got a big gain in quality w/ external A/D, clocking and a few tasty pres when using the "old" O2R.
