Like the title says, I'm looking for suggestions for a 16 channel (or so) rackable mixer/console (if possible) for $2000-$2500.

Yamaha 01v96 fits. Ability to do 24 ADAT i/o, built in effects, scene memory. Some decent sounding pre's (not quite as nice as my Portico, TG-2, ISA 428) and decent sounding A/D and D/A. I use mine with a HD24XR via light pipe as a digital router/monitor and it works very slick.

Mackie Onyx 1640

Allen & Heath Mix Wizard

Both rack mountable, decent boards.

Are all the bugs worked out of the Onyx? It seems like there's a lot of activity in that regard on the Mackie forum.

I've had several Mackie boards and still have my Allen & Heath Mix Wizard for small live venues - both fine boards and Mackie does improve their pres with each new product introduced. But, The Midas Venice took the Pre's and the EQ's up to a new level. I keep it hooked up to my Radar for monitoring and rough mixes and it steps up nicely. Quality faders, pretty good routing for a live board. Yes they do make a 16 channel rack mount that looks like the others.
