I give up on the whole discussion. I've never owned a Midas board, worked on many, and even with the merger was able to give Midas boards the benefit of the doubt. However, you read back through this thread and others and it appears, at least IMO, that most people are writing Midas off on this board.
My final points would be that Behringer has not re-invented their reputation as it applies to their entire product line. They have made a successful effort to design and market a series of digital boards which have started to prove Behringer can appeal to and succeed within a more demanding consumer marketplace. Congratulations to them on this point. I wish Uli and his crew well with their endeavors as I now remove Midas from the pedestal I had put them on.
