    I was wondering what I can expect sound wise between the 2, the TRS is in better shape, the MS-16 comes with the remote and meters W/ no dbx stuff. They are both going to cost about 500 when said and done. I just plan on using 8 tracks anyways but I would not might the ability to track a full band to tape

    The MS16 is more towards the professional side of the quality as far as the build. Better transport, better electronics. The TRS is a nice machine but Pro-Sumer in nature. The difference will be obvious between the sound if you have the opportunity to demo them side by side. The maintenance is easier, IMHO, on the MS16 as its built for regular maintenance as is any professional deck.

    I also have a minty 8516B with a +4 interface. Comes with a lot of the accessories too, about 800, while the ms16 will be costing me 450, hmmmmmmm
