Ok here is what my latest plan is: Sell my Mackie SDR and Mackie 24-8. Buy 16 ADC’s and 16 Pre amps, and mix in the box. I have wrestled with this idea for a while. But I think I am finally ready to commit to the box. I want decent ADC’s and pre-amps. I have a Lynx L22 and am quite happy with it. So the Aurora 16 seems like a viable option. That’s about 3k, I am not sure what the SDR, 24-8 with meter bridge, cables and extra hard drives will bring in for cash, but I hoping they will pay for the Aurora 16 at least. So that leaves preamps. I want transparent pre-amps for the most part. However a few coloured pre’s would be nice. I am looking at the SYTEK quad pack, as it is good value for the money. Any other suggestions? Oh and I don’t generally associate cost with quality, if something is good and cheap I am happy Thanks!
