SSL XLogic Alpha Channel or Tascam M520 console

I need your help guys ...

i am debating from either getting an SSL XLogic Alpha Channel Strip
or a Tascam M520 console(which would also look nice in the studio) ..

how do they compare? which is a better choice?

Thanx in advance guys ...

question is:
do you want a really good channel strip that doesn't look as impressive as a huge console or do you want an impressive looking large console with mediocre channel strips?

not sure about the pres in the tascam per se, but i have heard recordings done with an m3700 and if the 520 has the same pres(which i am pretty sure), those were some severely boring pres. very dull and lifeless tracks. i own an alpha vhd, the 4 channel pre only. it is a LOVELY sounding preamp. can be pretty sparkly clean, but the vhd gives balls and hair to whatever signal passes through it.

since you already have the 610, rock another pre like the ssl. 2 very different sounding preamps. neither suck, though. they just sound better on certain sources.
