As I read through your posts, I understand about every 4th word, so forgive my impertinence in asking such a simple question. But I'm tired of getting jerked around by Best Buy and Sony employees who know nothing :x , so I would really appreciate some help. I'm a high school music teacher and need a basic unit for recording cd's. The catch is I need inputs to record direct from self-powered stereo microphone as well as cd players and a mixing board for the big concerts. I would also like it to be able to duplicate concert recordings with the same machine. I know they exist. I have seen them, years ago even. But now that I want one, can't seem to find it. Any help for the audio challenged?

I believe what your looking for is for the "Denon DNC550R Professional Dual Drive CD-R and CD-RW Recorder." It has XLR inputs as well as RCA's plus you can copy from one drive to another.
As far as a mixer is concerned I love my Mackies, I have three of them (12ch - 14ch - 24ch), you can't go wrong with them.
Here is a link where I buy all my stuff and the product you need.
