We've put a dozen or so shows on the ProRack now and all of my guys are thrilled with it's performance.  It is quite simply a very high performance, full featured monitor desk packed into a 19" rack width package.  Typically, if a job required more than one monitor mix and and the budget didn't allow for 2 techs and an onstage monitor mix, I simply passed on the show.  Well, that's all changed now.  My guys came up with the setup shown in the attached pictures and they say they are completely comfortable giving a client 4 or even 6 mixes from FOH with this setup.  This means I can now put out very high quality small system packages with multiple monitor mixes and only one tech.  This opens up a whole new lower price strata to my clients for a flexible and compact package.  I am excited about this and the income potential it adds.  A tip of the hat and a thank you to my pals at APB!

How does it compare with a Hear Tech MixBack or an A&H WZ3 12M?

Favorably, IMHO.
More features and capabilities compared to both you mentioned.
Now, as for sound quality, I can only comment on comparison with A&H, which I've heard.
APB wins by .... well, much.

I can never make comment saying : Well, It's ok, if you consider how much it costs...'.

APB is very good, period !

Sean,
 I think you will find the APB ProRack is basically a major league console in a small frame.  Really quite a different animal than any other rack sized board I am aware of.
I agree with Alex, I tend to judge most products at this level of the market as better or worse considering the cost.  The APB simply stands out as good.

Am I missing something? Where's the actual "Road Test" of this thing?

Nick, this is my bad. I kept trying to shoehorn this guy into gigs, but it never quite worked out... nothing ever came up where I'd be able to get by with 16 channels. As Steve has attested above, it works great for him, but since I'm not doing my own gigs anymore and freelancing for others, I dropped the ball.

Unfortunately, the Road Test Pro Rack Monitor has been sold, another LABster mentioned to me that they were trying to get one but APB was backed up due to demand, so I arranged for them to get the one I had.

Hi Nick,
 Well, we have put a lot of miles on our House and Monitor versions of the ProRacks this season.  I have done a lot of small street festivals that fit quite nicely into the channel count of the ProRacks.  In fact, I would say that the channel count is the only "limiting' factor on these consoles (soon to be addressed by the ProDesk  Smile ).  These little desks have the features, build quality, and sound of a full sized mid/upper level console.  They are not for everyone.  If what you need is a real pro level console in a very small footprint, I think you will find the APB ProRacks are in a class of their own.
We truly love these little guys.  Hope that helps a little.  Feel free to email me if you have specific questions. All the best.
