soundcraft1660 or D&R dayner or...? Effects Pedals, Units & Accessories

soundcraft1660 or D&R dayner or...?

i'm on my way to get (finally some say!) rid of my MACKIE CR16
want to upgrade a bit to a 24, don't want a digital mixing board
more into vintage analogic ones
so my budget is around 2000 euros
for this range of price i have:

-the Soundcraft 1600,2400 ( i saw the 600 (no patch, does it matter?) at 500 euros as well)
-D&R dayner
-Mitec Joker VariDesk
-SoundTracs Topaz 32-8-6 or solo
-Tascam M-3500 ...

i'm working on cubase through a motu 896HD, i have no pre amps or compressor yet ( getting a UA 1176 someday..)

i do mostly rock/electro/folk music (think beck)on one hand
and commercials on the other,well.. more mainstream, haha

i need all your advices, from what i've read i kinda like the soundcraft but who knows?

thanx in advance

Out of that list I'd choose the Dayner. D&R still supports those and is located in the NL.
