As a few of ya' know, I've extolled the Toft ATB. I've been looking at it really hard among the many choices out there... I've looked at used large format; API, SSL and Neve. Generally 32 and 48 frames. The glitch is at $125k, a large format console just doesn't make sense... they barely make sense in the $65k range... like the SSL 4056 fitted 32, I was looking at. Digi's full blown ICON; D-Command in a 32 channel config is in the running too. The problem I have there is that before it's even delivered, it's worth half it's purchase price... or less. Sooo... I'm looking at some of the newer mid-priced, mid-line consoles... Specifically, the API 1608B. Aurora16's for A/D-D/A, and HD3. Anyone wanna suggest what's wrong or what's a more economical choice in the same quality range?
