Lives for gear

I like both.. Let's say that with the 827 you have the benefit of forgetting the calibration.. But as said by deedee is a "clean" machine.. And while it's not exactly like digital, IF I want clean I might go digital instead.

I had a Mara MCI JH24 16 tracks to 2".. if I had another studio I'd get exactly that.. Is FAT sounding, simply "right" for lack of a best description..
And the Mara MCI are pretty reliable.. they will last a long time without big issues, fixing them is rather easy as well (in case) and costs less than a Studer (even in Europe). (I also had a perfectly refurbed Studer C37, and I live in Switzerland.. not cheap.. But incredible sounding if you're looking for that vibe).
