    I'm looking at the Daking 1112 console. Anyone used it or heard any opinions about it ? This console seems to be exactly what I need, Class A, all discrete and transformer balanced with good eq but it's still compact. Any input greatly appreciated.

    I went to the web site and checked it out.

    NICE! How much does it sell for?

    I've used Dakiing gear several times at least. 1st rate high quality with character. They are custom built on order from what I had heard. It's gota be great.

    I'm waiting for an offer, still I have no idea about the pricetag... For a 24-channel I'm guessing it's about 24 times the price of the rackmounted pre/eq + a little more for the mastersection. The dealer told me that it's possible to get it without pres, only line-gain, and that would lower the price. That would be ideal for me since I'm using my console only to mix and monitor, my pres are outboard. That would still make the board harder to sell 2nd hand later on. I'll just wait for my offer and if a stripped down version feels within reach I might get it. If the price is too high I'll just keep dreaming :wink:

    Ask wwittman about it, he is a big Daking user and I believe friends with the designer.

    Got my offer today and the pricetag for a 24-channel desk with VU-meters and patch is about $70.000. Without the patch about $62.000. So... I need to dig deep in my wallet and think this over a couple of times :)
