I like the usb, adat, the 80GB Hard Drive and 8 outputs and spares while standard! They scored the top of points.J 'also likes to mix the tracks of a squence with 4 faders, it was fun (for the live example).

For 1920 euros or 1500 euros new used was much less expensive than lments sparsmme of low-end.
