    I'm not sure if this console would be very applicable in the studio setting, but it seems extremely cheap ($5200) for 24 channels of Neve preamps, EQs, and Compressors. I don't know which model preamps it has (broadcast console) and since I don't have the cash to buy it, I don't feel the need ot look into it further. Just thought one of you may be interested.

    Here's another one somewhat interesting, although I find it hard to believe they will let it go that cheap.

    That 5100 Neve (those are 4 bus modules + L/R) is a good deal if the price stays down as it is. It's a very good little board but does require some maintenance. 1st thing, it will absolutely need to be recapped from head to toe. There's a lot of caps in there...I know...I did an entire recap for an 84 channel 5100 (slightly different module) and it took a long time and $$. There's over 100 caps in each of the modules on the console on ebay (way more in the desk I did). This will have to be done ideally every 2-4 years. The sound of the desk was completely different after the recap. It came to life and sounded the way it was meant to.

    just a heads up on the D&R

    check to make sure it has preamps... I think a number of boards were made just for post work and didnt have preamps.

    oops... its over heheh....
