Right off the bat... "Tune the room from anywhere" ... a bullet item too...

Doesnt matter, unless someone like us is driving it Steve, those 5999 bar bands mixing from stage will still sound like horse pucky.

I think I need several of these right now. When can you buy them?

I don;t see these being really big for clubs so much as I see these being used for breakout rooms and smaller corporate events.  Looks like they could be really handy for those applications.

16 preamps in a thing that size and multiple ipad control.
Sounds like a good deal for self-controlled monitor mixes.

It appears that the price wars and small format digital consoles are now a reality.

For what it's worth, and this leaves a pretty bad taste in my mouth, if they can hold the failure rate down, Behringer will soon release a winner at least as far as capabilities are concerned.

$2500.00 list price, which is less than I paid for my APB Pro House.

It's hard to tell from the picture but is the Mackie a docking station for the I Pad, or is that a Mackie control surface we are seeing?

Ipad goes in and docks, and then runs the mixer.
You can also remove the Ipad and mix wirelessly with it.

Looks like an Ipad dock to me. Which is why we are seeing (and are going to see more of) this type of mixer. The digital engine part is done via the iPad. There are a bazillion people who can code apps for the iPad. That just leaves a hardware interface that is pretty easy to do for guys like mackie and berhinger. Congratulations. You just made a digital console.
