Like most of us here I have been building my gear arsinal for some time. I now have a really fine collection of mics, preamps, compressors, equalization, and a/d/a conversion. So the time has come to get rid of the weakest link in the chain, that wink leak being the mixing console. I use a 32 tape input Soundcraft now, and what I was wondering was if I get something like a Trident 80 for a line mixer, will it be as much of a significant difference as between using a cheap front end and then hearing the good gear? Going from the Soundcraft Preamp and a Audio Technica to a Neve and a U67 was a serious ear opener, and the difference was probably 400% better minimum. I think the weak point of the Soundcraft is its summing buses, so I am hoping a Trident will be that much better for $30K +. Any other serious advantages of the Trident besides EQ?
