Tons of features, but annoying that there are buttons that will never be implemented. Some things are incredibly convoluted, like setting up a headphone mix, and the display could be better - four characters is not much to label a channel, and next to useless for editing plugins. Everything has a nice feel to it, though flickering of LED's and displays on occasion causes some concern about build quality.

Price paid: $12000 CDN

Sound quality is excellent. Pre's not quite as good as our Red One, but for most of the time, it's not worth patching the Red One in for the difference. Headphone output is noisy. Monitoring is not the best.
It's easy to use but hard to set up. The phantom power buttons are in the most stupid place ever, totally inaccessible, and there should be a much easier way to get a separate headphone mix or two.
It feels well built, but I worry about the flickering of LED's and displays. It shouldn't be this way.

Does most of what its supposed to in a nice clean way. Some things are easier with the computer/mouse, but the basic console functions are good and easy to use. I guess its pretty cute when you boot up and see every light on it lit up for a second or two. Some people seem to still be highly entertained by the automation. I dunno. It's not as cute as some of the artists we get in.
