Soundcraft 6000 16/16?

Are the 16 channel versions of this console hard to find?

Anyone know where to find dimensions and weight? (it's not in the PDF manual on the soundcraft website)

This is the exact console we have in our studio.

I've never seen another one, but I live in a small market with bad taste, so that probably doesn't mean much. Jim Williams at Audio Upgrades seems to have his finger on the pulse of old Soundcraft boards, so he may be able to help you find one, who knows?

As for dimensions... ours is outfitted for 24 input channels with 8 blank slots. We also have the TT patchbay... not sure if they were optional or not. Probably 6 feet wide in total? They're heavy too.

I can check the exact measurements when I go in next if you'd like.

This is what I'm looking for.

If it's big and heavy, it won't work for my needs. But I was wondering when I saw this particular board how it would compare in size to some of the smaller consoles.

If you happen to be by your console, Then measurements would be cool - but don't make a special trip or anything

I sold a 16x16x2 to Marc Graue voiceover studios in Burbank about 13 years ago.
It was a true 16x16, very short frame, no extra slots with the patch bay. These are very rare. Given the cost of these used, just get a 28 input model, they are common and cheap.
