I second that! I’d love to have a Vr but the power bill alone would be extremely high and the cost to have it recapped. The Ssl wouldn’t be cheaper either unless you added an atomic power supply and a new computer.

If I had a 50k budget I’d be looking at a used Aws or maybe the Trident 88. The Daking would be about 100k for a 24 channel version last time I looked. So it’s not within your budget. Even the 16 channel one is 79k.
