Re: You weren't kidding!

Of course you're right. The line is the hard part. But, to say that the obsenity of a $6500 wire is relative is an over simplification. $6500 IS different than $25 even if I have no money. I think there are certain extremes of consumerism and greed that should be called to task. And I don't think th...

Re: Soundcraft Spirit M12, your thoughts please?

Useless post ahead: I had the Spirit SX20 for a while. Very nice for the price ($200 through digibid). I've since sold it to a reputable engineer who plans to use it for quickie location stuff. The SX20 is kind of a hybrid live/recording thing, it's routing might be a little more flexible, but I'm n...
