It would be unwise not to. Because those consoles break down and are prone to problems, and you can't service them yourself in the same way as the older SSLs.

I work on and off in a Duality room and the console is pretty much useless on bad days. There is so much computerised logic in a Duality, most of it controlled from the center section, and when the center section flips out (which it does in a major way after a few years) you definitely want the service contract as the console is pretty much useless without the center section working properly. You can't even switch on +48 on a channel without visiting the center section...

A Duality sounds good and is pretty to look at but is not built to last.
