The Alice 828 was an excellent desk.

I bought mine in the late 1970s with BBC spec. PPMs and later upgraded to the low-noise board.

Very well made and an excellent desk - but noisy by today's standards. When I went digital in 1983 it became the weakest part of the chain and the mixer noise was where the noise was coming from - I sold it in the late '80s and bought a Mackie, which was much quieter.

AT the Time, Alice Stancoil was Ted Fletcher and John Andrews.
