ANALOG CONSOLE ALL TRIDENT THROUGH AND THROUGH! The Trident Series 78 is a cost effective mixing console tailored for engineers, studio owners, educational facilities, houses of worship, and live sound applications. The 78s are split/inline consoles with individual channels in 4-way panels. Using an 8 subgroup configuration and incorporating 6 Aux sends, its routing options are vast and simple to use. Connections are fast and easy with DB-25’s throughout the board and XLR’s for all Mic inputs. With the 808 EQ at its core, including selectable channel inserts and discrete preamps driving the inputs, the Series 78 consoles offer a wide array of summing and mixing options. The uncompromising sonic quality and compact footprint of the 78s are able to meet any demand. Features found throughout the 78 make for a straightforward and powerful package, but paramount to all else is The Sound. Among the many styles, preferences and methods of recording exists the expectation that a board must have the ability to be pushed hard and sound big. This is a hallmark of the series 80 consoles and the 78 carries that tradition forward. Bottom line: the Trident 78 was created with all of this in mind so that you can use it to make great sounding tracks. MODULARITY THROUGHOUT The 78s by design are manufactured to be a more cost effective variant of the fully modular 88s. Incorporating a similar chassis design and the same meter bridge, the 78s have a rugged and proven core. Using a semi-modular design, the 78s are able to effectively reduce their overall costs without a significant sacrifice to serviceability.

This is the new Trident 78 Console. Like the 88, but with a few things removed. Channels now pull for service in 4 channel banks. No transformers on the mic pre's. Fewer Aux Sends. Etc.... Welcome to Trident Audio Developments https://youtu.be/OEGT9HFMx2M
...in the height of summer.. Also shipping / setup is an interesting and expensive concept.. Personally I'd go for a new Trident 78 with Lundahl upgrades (plus a long warranty if you can get one), we had a 32 channel 80 series at college and as far as I remember it was a sweet sounding...
