John, could you elaborate a bit more on the intended application? In particular, will you be trying to interface this console with any existing in-ear monitor or multitrack recording setup? Each console has its own "ecosystem" of formats it tends to play nicely with. Also, roughly how many mix buses?
As the title says I'm considering the purchase of a 24 to 32 channel digital mixing console for under $10K., preferably under $7500.00. Would greatly appreciate any and all recommendations, suggestions and comparisons.
Very subjective question. I think all the above mentioned desks sound fine and all have great features. The best one is the one that does all you need it to do at the price your willing to pay. As mentioned ancillary items will be a large factor to consider. A case, I-Pad, computer and router may set you back another large chunk of change if you don't already have them. A good case start around $500 and goes up from there. In some cases, a really good case may cost more than the item it contains! At the 10K mark I think an LS9 is the best bet, but you can get 2 or 3 Behringers for that price. I think the Soundcraft is a good value as well, but for me it has some shortcomings that I couldn't live with. That is me though. I don't think the A&H is going to fit the bill. You have to purchase the stage boxes ala carte and by the time you get a cases and the channel count you want, you will be over the 10K mark?
The GLD is easily available as a complete system for under 10K. The LS9 is outdated, and unless you need 64 channels and a headache, is severely outclassed by the GLD, Pro1, and in some ways the X32.
Folks, this is for live sound reinforcement. I'd love to ditch the EFX rack and the monitor board.
