Need info on 5088 from EXPERIENCED OWNERS


Im seriously considering pulling the trig on a 5088.

Id like to know from EXPERIENCED OWNERS:

1. Power consumption: Whats the deal on that front?

2. Turning On and OFF. Whats the story with that? some desks really hate being turned on and off, like old SSL's and Neve's. How is this one in that regard?
Whats the shortest "downtime" that justifies turning it off. Whats the risk of components taking a hit during power on?

3. General maintenance and OPAMP lifespan. What's the general maintenance on these and how often do you have an opamp or other parts dying on you ?

4.Temperature. Does it have to be in a well AC'd room at all times like older consoles (again: SSL and old Neve comes to mind)?

Please feel free to add whatever you think is valuable info, not so much about how great it sounds, since that is well known and the reason for buying it,
but rather what are the dangers and shortcomings to look out for and to consider before purchase.
