    This is a broadcast mixer. They were often custom built by Amek for radio/TV stations. Myself have had some looks at two BCII's. Seems like these kind of desks are available for good prices now. The negative side is that they are designed for broadcast and you'll probably have to do some rework on it to fit in a recording enviroment, maybe a lot of work. Do a research on the specific desk asking the seller about direct outs, auxes, buses and so.

    I got another desk instead... About quality (BCII), I was told by the engineers they never failed and was very expensive at the time, and that they are half-way to real high end "leaving for example Soundcraft behind" as one of them said...Whatever that mean. The guys were from Swedish television.

    Thx for the answer!

    I did yesterday a test whith the broadcast mixer against the preamps of amek 9098 dma and I was really impressed how near the sound of the BC01 to the 9098 was! The preamps sound really good for me and I think I will hold this mixer.

    I need a good submixer for synths and external gear to mix two track to recording card! Any other mixer that you can recommend for a price range < 1000,- euro
