    The thing is probably older than you are...if you're serious about it, bring whoever will be your "tech" for the thing to check it out...it's a similar concept of having a mechanic check out a used car before you buy it.

    I don't recall any 'Hill Audio' desks that ran in the $65,000 AUD range, but there could have been one. It's been a whole lot of miles, and quite a few chemicals since the last time I saw a Hill Audio mixer... :eek: Good luck.

    Yes I have seen that in the Trading post for weeks too, if you can get it for a better price it might be great..It will look impressive
    heres another link with a higher price

    You will have to get a tech to check it out.
    If there is anything wrong with any of the strips, parts etc might be hard to find.
    I have thought about it myself, although I just set everything up around a control24 for the pro tools rig.

    Good luck Dave (Indent Music)
    PS The $*^t going down in the US is so sad, hope none of the regulars/or friends have been caught up in it.
