    How about it? What was your first real mixing desk? That first big purchase where you graduated from a Peavey, Sunn, Biamp, Tangent or Tapco board to the " big time"? LOL

    Here's mine...a Neotek Elan... (Man, I sure miss that desk) I bought this to replace a Tascam 300 Series:

    Gotta love those handles built right into the frame... they look like roll bars on a jeep. :ROFLMAO:LOL

    Thats actually the one I had. Well, not THE one but one like it! I wanted to use it in the studio but no direct outs. The work around was going to be the inserts half-plugged...

    My first was a Yamaha 916 threatre console. I got it for a deal and used if for a few years.

    I actually think this is my actual board. Looks like my case as it was custom made for it. Go figure! Looking on the web and after 25 years I find it 800 km south of me..
