    I have a line on a used Tascam M3500 at a great price in excellent condition. The guys says the faders need to be cleaned, but that's it. My only qusetion is, should I buy it? Are there any limitations I should be concerned about besdides the lack of phase (polarity) switches? I am upgrading from an Alesis Studio32 16 channel so pretty much anything else is going to be better than it.

    Yes! Especially at the $1000 price it is now at. A steal.

    I had a 32-8 a few years back, I liked it better than the mackie 32-8 I used. It is not as quiet, the mic pres are warmish, although I did mod mine with burr browns etc.
    The faders have a nice feel to them, does it have a meter bridge? The Eq is good. The split design is great for bring tracks back through. The buses can be a little noisy, Use the direct outs if you can. If it has the balance kit it is a bonus. There are a lot of mods to be done to them. I liked the board a lot. The guy who brought it is still very happy with it. Also it does look a little better then the alesis.

    This is another of the topics that might be better covered in Harvey's forum...so I moved it over there.
