If you put your hand on the top panel, it will be hottest near the transformer, which is to one side. The other side of the panel you might be able to leave your hand on the panel.
I
tried yesterday.
Yes It never gets that hot! But I never use the eq's in a mix situation.
yesterday I was in a 16 track recording situation and the Pwr sply didn't feel warm at all!

Owned one since 2003. Ended up changing out main volume pot for upgraded. Had one problem with power main feed into console. Tech support walked me through a simple soldering fix. Two pots on EQ side have cold solder joints that need to be fixed, but usually a light tap will get them functioning. As said before board is very clean, but I track with Neve and API mic pre's, so I don't really find that a problem. EQ's are sufficient, they will get simple jobs done. The routing on this console is very flexible. I usually use software for surgical Eq anyway. The mix compressor does not get much use for me, tried it but not a fan. I use this console at least 50 hours a week, probably a $150 a month increase to electric bill. All in all this console has been low maintenance and made some great sounding rock records for me.

BTW I also have used it in 5.1 Surround, which work phenomenal.

I owned one for several years. They're extremely good and there's really nothing at the price that matches the sound and features. As others have said, they're not coloured. But they sound clear and punchy with plenty of headroom. There are balanced inserts on both short and long fader paths. The routing is decent. The eq is very nice if not particularly 'special' sounding. The preamps are similarly transparent but they're really not ordinary. You can record anything with those and while they don't add distortion or obvious harmonics there's nothing ugly or unpleasant whatsoever. They're just decent solid pres. I've tracked lots of records with those desks and always had no complaints.

I think it's a good buy.
