We are talking about the median profitability of citizens.
For example, the average salary in Russia is about £400/mo. Yes, i’m not mistake in zeros.
Are you ready to buy this device (doesn’t matter of generation) for £8000?
Of course, no.
But i had to do it.
And now... SURPRISE!!!

Ok folks, i have to relax!
I don't want for this sad event to overshadow my and your good mood.
In any case, the mixpre10T (1'st) is still works well and performs his tasks.
But when i will update my gears, I'll don’t buy SD again.
There are many equally worthy brands that never allow such a "racket" with their customers.

Peace, friendship and chewing gum for everyone!

Meh. I won't lie and say I wasn't disappointed originally, but I'm not going to get down on a company for adding new features to an existing product; and, to be honest, I've made this far without ever using a 32-bit recorder; I'm sure it's a nice feature to have, but is it necessary?

Yeah, I think of how many great classical recordings still highly regarded as pinnacles of fidelity were made on 14, 16, and 18 bit systems.

I like the idea of a 32 bit converter because I like to use that format when I need an intermediary between programs, and having the file recorded that way seems convenient. But it’s hardly a necessity. Interested to see if more manufacturers pursue 32 bit converters as a new standard (RME, Merging, DAD, etc).

Yes, you right. But now – another technologies and aproches to the recording.
With 32 bits we can to forget about clipping and don’t use any limiters and other dynamic gears.
Analogue tapes has a big range and good resist for overloads (i’ve a long time works in analogue), but it’s absolutely another way and “religion”.
Sorry for my stupid English.

Doesn't the current MixPre have 32bit converters technically? The new ones are floating point whatever that brings to the table right?
I don't see that as a huge deal but maybe I'm missing something.......

Given what it has in it a Mixpre is amazing for the money. I think they're able to capitalize on the design. A DI would be great but not sure how they'd do that if you use a control surface...... Yeah the reverb bug is annoying and CS is fantastic!......... Hope they continue updates and don't see why not. The new units aren't that different.......

The first generation had 32 bit converters, probably the same ones as the new series, but they could not record a 32 bit float file. Only the internal processing was 32 bit. I don't know if I would ever record in anything greater than fixed 24 bit, but the improbability of digital clipping even without limiters makes the 32 bit float resolution somewhat appealing.
