Begining to Wonder about New Gear.......

Guys: I am NOT badmouthing APB Dynasonics, but here is my story: I have been using an APB 16 channel desk for a few years now, however, about 3 months after I bought it I had to send it back for a new power module, and now about 2 years later, it has developed a very nasty "snap-crackle & pop!" so, I pressed into service an old Phonic PSM 1602B (about 20 years old...). The Phonics has only two FX auxiliaries and not many features at all, HOWEVER, I am simply amazed at how good and solid it sounds!!!!! I did some "inventive patching & routing" and now, I do NOT want to go back to the APB...this old hummer sounds better to me!!!! Maybe that says something about how the "old stuff" was made..? Is this old Phonics a sleeper desk? Thoughts? Comments?

I don't know anything about either brand, but your ear listened to them both now listen to your ear.
