    While this may be an oxymoron, I'll give 'er a shot.

    -My primary goal is to plug in mics, go throught the pre's, and then go direct out to my rack mount Delta 1010, and get decent sound for recording.

    -My secondary goal is to do the odd gig, once per month or two, and be able to do sound for our 'band' such as it is.

    -Ease of servicability(read: local) and solid construction would be a bonus.

    -I don't need effects, but some of these have them.



    OF course, the usual suspects pop up.

    Mackie 1604 VLZ3---(16 XLR's)---$900

    Allen and Heath Mix Wizard 16:2---(16 XLR's)---$1000

    Soundcraft M series-M12 20 channel---(12 XLR's)---$900

    Yamah MG24/14---(16XLR's)---$900(somebody is selling one locally for $550, used, but sound is more important to me than saving a few hundred bones)

    So which one of these would you buy, and why?

    Oh, and if there are others out there under a grand that really shine, I'm all ears

    Cheers
    Keith
