I've just been offered a Soundcraft 6000 mixing desk for 800 euros (circa 960 dollars). I've heard of the make but know nothing about either them or this particular model. I'm in the middle of googling it now to find out more. Apparently, it cost about 17500 euros (about 21,000 dollars) new in like 1975, or something. Anyway, two of the bus channels crackle and need repairing. Gentleman selling reckoned on about 300 euros (360 dollars) to fix. Just for comparison I now have a Behringer MX2642A and was thinking of upgrading to a Mackie 24/8 (or 32/8) Has anyone ever used one? What are they like? Any opinions on whether it's worth the money? Should I get the Mackie or the Soundcraft? If the answer appears obvious to you please be gentle with me - I have no idea about these things! Thanks for any help.
