I'm so completely tired of dealing with scratchy pots and flaky pad switches on my late 80's Yamaha MC1202's, and I'm thinking of replacing them with one of these:

I use channel inserts (16) into the computer, and the fader mix to the headphones. I could care less about the USB ...I'd rather have a talkback mic Rolling Eyes

The pre's (which are my main concern, obviously) are 2-stage "DuoPreTM" designed by A&H.

Is this a good idea, or would you go a different route? (need 24 channels w/
at least 16 of the cleanest mono preamps I can afford for $600-800ish)

dag... nothin?

Okay.. Zzounds has the pay-while-you-play deal that looks better to my wallet. Unfortunately, they don't carry the Zed 24.

So I'm thinking of grabbing a Yammy MG-series:

So any thoughts? Much better features ...I've used the 32 channel console for live and it seemed pretty cool, but I'm most interested in how it sounds in a studio setting. Anybody got one of these?
