    Phonic is a relatively new company and I've had no experience with their stuff, I don't think many people have either?

    Soundcraft is a longtime well-known brand.

    Since you're basically interested in entry-level oriented equipment, I would make my decision based upon features of what you want and not really worry about the sound quality blah blah. They are all modern-day design consoles and their audio performance will all be relatively similar.

    Back in 1982, I purchased a truly awful sounding Soundtracs British console because it had all of the features I needed. The microphone preamplifiers were the cheapest worst, single 5534 chip type. It did not stop me from making some truly bitchin' recordings. Later I sold it when it was time to move up.

    Hi Remy

    Thanks for your input. Yes even I tried looking for reviews on Phonic but couldnt find any about this board. Although Soundcraft is old but still Phonic 2442x has a lot more routing and features than Soundcraft has,this is where I am confused and wanted to get some reviews on phonic.

    Hope to see some more inputs from others

    THanks

    I've had good results recording live with a Phonic helixboard. The 24 has 16 mic channels, 8 direct outs and 16 outs over firewire. It also has 4 subgroups. It's a good entry level board with great features for the price.
