Hello all, I'm looking at 2 boards for recording right now. Both are used and about the same dough. 1-Mackie Onyx, 8XLR's, 4 EQ's by Perkins, 2 sweeping, individual phantom power. Does firewire. 2-Soundcraft 200SR, 8 XLR's(I believe) 4 EQ's, all fixed, individual phantom power. Old enough the VU's are needles. I think late 80's, but I'm having a hard time pinpointing it. I kinda think it predates Harmon buying them. Zat true? So? What would you buy? I don't know if it's relevant, but my current rig is two channels of ancient Altec Lansing pre from the 60's, so my recordings now go through 12AX7's. I am, of course, looking to expand. Thanks for the insights in advance. Cheers Keith.
