The 9000 J and K-Series (the J was released first in 1995) had a similar user layout, but very different internals. On the 9000, no capacitors are used throughout the audio path. SSL calls this technology “Superanalogue”. Theoretical bandwidth is 5Hz to 500kHz. The circuits are band limited (on purpose) to 10Hz to 80Khz on a 9000J and 10Hz to 120KHz on a 9000K.
The final XL9000K, introduced in 2002, has surfaced mount components in the centre section, compared to the J it has better headroom, bandwidth and a lot of upgrades.
Fewer consoles were sold, compared to the (4000) E/G-Series – only 190 SL9000Js and 55 XL9000K. They are mostly custom pieces.

Well let's roll with the OT for just a little bit more. Have you tried PA's SSL 9000j? Also, the Lindell 80 is pretty roundly loved around here, I've gotten good use out of it but have never used a Neve board so who knows how accurate it it. Sounds great to me though. I HAVE...
