NO ****!! That would be amazing..... considering the price for JUST the buss comp is $2,200 + at least $500 for a mynx frame..... or $3,500 for the 19" rack unit....

So add the EQ's at $850 a pop + X-Rack!?........ but wait... then it might be out of budget..... so you're gonna complain that it doesn't offer enough features for what you can afford?

Why not a Neotek, Trident, Amek, ..... all within the same budget....... oh yeah, because the goal would be to go for more of an "SSL sound". A Studer desk aint gonna get you there, no matter how nice it might be. Not knockin' Studer desks, or especially their EQ's, but it AINT gonna sound like an SSL that's for sure.

FWIW, I really wish SSL had bumped up the price and added recall. Here's to hoping we'll see a mkII version. I'm sure they're selling enough of 'em to warrent a second version.
