Altec Lansing 1599A Mic Pre/Mixer. Anyone using these?

I'm looking at upping my preamp count as I only have four at the moment.
I've found quite of few of these units for sale on Ebay and may get a couple as they're relatively cheap. The 1599 is a six input preamp/mixer and for $100 plus shipping, it's definitely far cheaper than buying anything new. I believe it's only got a stereo output but I'm sure I can modify it to have separate outs for each channel.

Has anyone had any good/bad experiences with these?

Did you end up buying it. Im in the same situation. Picking one up cheap and wondering if itll be worth it.

No, it's just another thing I was looking at. I think if you get one in working condition it should be good. The only problem I remember is that I think it only has two outputs.

No phantom power either. I'm fairly certain I've seen the direct out mod floating around somewhere or other.
