me the trouble/money of finding a way to attenuate the signal...

Anyway I don't think I'll stick with the Mackie for long...

You're all correct about not rushing in but the trouble is my studio has to
go into mixing of some albums in a month or so and I don't want to delay
anything any further... (and not mix on the mackie either)

Today I'm going to check out the D&R. It has a patch bay on it.
I hope I will be able to play around with it. The guy says its good as new...
I really hope it is. anyway he wants 10k($) for it. is that reasonable?

Anyone can comment further on the Orion's/D&R's color/lack of color?
Or in a way, the general vibe of this unit? How does it feel?
I know it sounds kind of abstract, but if you know what I mean... well
you got the point
