What does everyone think about the Manley 16 ch mixers as a main mixdown console to use for direct D/A from Protools? I will be purchasing the line in only version (2 of them linked for 32 channels) and will be using outboard pres to ProTools (from and to 2xAD8000SE and 2xDigi D/A). I keep going over the options for a console upgrade from my 24 channel Trident 65, and this seems to be a very plausible idea, at least for quality sake. How does everyone think a rack mixer will appear to the public/clientel? It seems that freelance engineers will be excited about it (because of the Manley quality), but I wonder if the band off the street will be freaked out by two rack mount mixers instead of a relatively big traditional console. Two of them will be around $16K street I suppose, while my Trident is worth around $8K, so I could MORE than double the quality for only $8K more. Opinions?
