I had one of those that I bought back then, and I wish I still had it damnit! I *do* remember people being hyped about their sound, back then. And I've seen professional soundmen use them on location... Small and effective, perfect for routing a small studio. I do like my Soundcraft M8 quite a bit, though, although for my small outfit, it's a bit of overkill. But I do like the pres, and use them a lot... It makes me happy...
the little 1604's and 1202's weren't bad at all - not much in them to mess things up with. i loathed the 8 buss mackies, but a lot of people liked them, for reasons i could never quite fathom.
