Who would have ever thought we might see a defective X32. From another site......"After only 26 gigs under her belt my X32 is defective. In the middle of a show I pushed a business card under the console. I touched the board and pickup it up by about an inch. Thats when all hell broke lose.Comps and Gates go into full protect mode and once the console is moved the gates stay in full so no audio passes or registers on the meters. I quickly restarted the board and everything was back to normal. Now at the end of my gig I pulled out all the XLRs and firewire and switched the edison cable. Same problem. But this time i had no audience so I let the board just do its thing. After about 30 seconds the L:R main buss makes the most awful noise and it was Full LEFT then Full RIGHT. I took videos of all of this and am taking it back to the place I bought it.... "not happy...http://youtu.be/aYX0HxAPiP4http://youtu.be/iD16b3_UPzM

I am not sure what your point is, and I really don't enjoy defending "them", but they have reportedly shipped 20k units, so unless you have reports of thousands of such failures, this is a non-event. So far the only apparent design/build flaw I've read about, relates to an internal cable that picks up noise and steps on the noise floor, if not dressed properly away from clock noise. I would take the wild guess that they have corrected this in new builds. So it appears to have survived the initial roll-out. The vote is still out on how well they hold up in regular use, but we'll learn about that over time. JR
John, I know it's been mentioned before but I really think you deserve a medal for the grace and restraint you've shown during this whole X32 craze. In an industry that is typically full of fan-bois and haters, your ability to put aside bias and previous affiliations is nothing short of commendable.
