if that's porn, then there's a good chance it's only for those into necrophilia.

Hi there,

Yeah...ebay now prohibits (or is meant to) any reference that is not actually for sale.

So when people search for *Neve* having a Neve knob(the cheapest visible part) lends
legitimacy to the listing. There are a few of these types on ebay.

Great... does that mean we're going to see more Behringer MX602As being sold with a plastic Neve knob, API 500 blank panel and non-functional SSL Plasma meter?

Probably not, actually... the plastic Neve knob and API panel together actually cost more. ;-)

That thing looks like a freaking nightmare.

Be ready to get out your hat and whip, and soldering iron, cuz whoever buys that is going to realize it should've belonged in a museum once they're done working on it.

Yes, it probably sounds awesome, but F that.

Give me a Midas or DDA, I've got a tape machine to setup.

Heh, well, nobody said porn was pretty.

Peace,

When in good nick - they didn't sound "awesome". They were highly proficient and a good unit.
I also imagine that this particular unit is a bit of a dog.... whoever gets it really doesnt know what they're letting themselves in for - power supplies are a bbbeeeyyaach on this baby. So porn? maybe "over 60's" .....

Right on, I just figure two things that have to work upon purchase are Mogami, connectors, patchbay, and mixers. Outboard can poop out, but...to hell with repairing the unnecessary. Damn, I do get a hard on for vintage gear, but not vintage health discussions.

Give me something that works on the mains. That's one major thing I've learned from DIY.

You may have a point! ;-)

that's exactly what they're doing, because you can bet you're @ss they plugged it in; a working console is worth a lot more, after all.

you *know* very little, if anything, works on this creature. my wild guess is nothing powers up, no life. start with the power supply, work from there.

what this desk is: a great deal for someone who knows how to refurbish and rack up the modules. calrecs sound great, they hold their own with the big boys, and resale on 24+ modules would greatly outstrip the purchase price.
