A table 24 tracks steel American-made at the time. With a vintage analog circuitry.
The potentiometers have a specific race, not too soft nor too hard, the faders are a bit soft but they, too, precise.
It has 8 faders to their respective, which are flanked by four sets of knobs) to further improve the output settings.
Note the presence of a connection noon, still no one knows exactly why.
A hand ... one.
 Good, but do not kid ourselves. Modern tables can make more points.
The machine is pretty damn good and respects the logic of the time. We will have to know to draw its full potential.
You can assign any track to any task (or the hand) can be defined for each track if it will be inserted post-preamp or pre-preamp.
We can make each track a track line or mic and you can choose if you want to track his powers a micro mode "ghost" on an individual basis.
To 8 is all you need to record a good quality, but you can also, for example, manage groups of returns and many other things (that tells you your creativity in the end). Note however that these eight to have only four independent EQ, so a equation necessarily has an impact on two tracks (can be annoying for some).
The quality steel is a reliable machine. Be careful to moisture that could corrode the knobs.
By-cons, I do not rotate with. We do more lugs around a grandmother on the road. And its weight is VERY conscéquent!
 Very flexible, very thorough, very logical once it has been a little studied.
The general good.
Every track is accurately recorded and transcribed. The accuracy is good and the noise absent. Unless the outputs Aux, our branch there and returns, driven more than 2 / 3, we begin to hear a resonance. Note also that in our model, output emits a noise to unusually high, similar to a frigidère at full power. This is due to a contact problem in the table. The dynamics are excellent. The preamps are good but do not tolerate extreme gains. There are sound any analog 70-80 years, allowing her to have the time without problems.
In comparison I can make the low-end current Mackie, Yamaha's entry-level current of current Inkel, and many others. The entry of today is not worth the high end of the day. This is still true now.
Note that the manual explains how to reduce hum and other noises that this requires redundant anyway an intense effort to achieve (use these jacks with patterns such as welding output, ect ...).
 hum lives and are pushing the average down, because to ban them, we must invest time, see, means. As for pure sound quality, you can not catch her out on that point. And while some just mail me "but an ssl console or tl audio is better" ... bin because they aurant except that their console is 7000 euros. If that cost me ... (Answer below)
... 200 euros! Here's what you pay for a good meal these days! And do not tell me it can not do great things. ACDC, Pantera, ledzep, Sister Sister, System of a Down and many other groups, before sorrel, played / recorded on the consoles of this type.
 absolutely advisable even if technically outdated. The sound quality is never exceeded it!
