Mixer situation?

I currently run a Mackie onyx which i am selling and want to go with a bigger better board. It will be for a small studio so i dont need more than about 48 chan's total. I was looking into the Tascam dm 4800, a Yamaha dm2000 or any other mixer that will provide great sound, built in dsp effects and easily transfer to the cpu for a front end. Thanks.

Ditto. My personal experiences with Tascam digital boards has not been that great. These days, Tascam seems to put stuff out on the market way too early. There always seem to be software glitches, hardware issues and the like with their stuff. And before they've corrected these problems, they've got a "newer and better" model out in the stores.
Yamaha, on the other hand, is much better at getting the product right BEFORE it hits the shelves. They are really the king of the digital mixer, IMHO.

The DM2000 is a great mixer, targeted mainly at production mixing, but it also works well live. You would need to check how many microphone channels you require for your live work, and be prepared to buy external 8-channel microphone preamps with ADAT output to make up the difference from the 24 channels built into the DM2000. You would also need to fit enough MY16-AT expansion cards in the DM2000, as the base unit doesn't have ADAT I/O.
