  M32R user. A local band has one of the Presonus 32S desks. I believe it is the 32S as it can only do 32 channels where I believe the newer ones can do 64.  I thought it sounded fine for what it is. I didn't care for the "feel" of the desk though. Hard to explain but just moving around it seemed odd to me. At first I thought I was just not used to it but it wasn't that. I liked my M32R right out of the gate. The normal patching / setup time to get things up and running the way I wanted but otherwise for me a quick change over from the 01v96 I had before.
  Which ever desk you determine is right for you look up Mike Pyle and others here for pricing. You may find some very good deals! Just post a WTB ( wanting to buy ) in the sales section here.
  Best of luck with your search and let us know what you end up with and your thoughts on it.

If controlling a mixer remotely with an iPad APP will be a big part of what you do the Allen Heath apps are far better than the X/M32, Soundcraft and the Presonus apps.

I've never used any of the third party Mix Station apps.
Head in hands - Mixing Station is where it's at with X/M 32 (as well as QU and Si).  Not pretty, but hugely functional, infinitely customisable, well supported, and platform agnostic.  Sadly not (yet) available for SQ.

If this is for your own rig, get what you want to mix on. If it will see a rotating door of others, get an m32.
This pretty much summarises it.

And to everyon's comments about sound quality - for the majority of churches the sound quality issues will overwhelmingly be with the talent, the room, and the operator - the desk & PA really won't be the limiting factor...

Measure twice, and cut once; this is especially important if you are a mohel.

X32/M32 user mostly , but also regularly behind a SQ series desk. No experience with the Presonus consoles.

I don't completely get the question. Are you looking for a new console for your own rig or looking to update the church setup?



sorry I wasn't clear.  I'm looking to be more marketable to larger production shops and churches this year.

Seems there is a high and growing demand and easy money at good day-rates.
both the larger sound shops that would use me for smaller stage stuff, have the M22, as does a number of churches in the area that have upgraded this past year.

For my personal small events rig, I'm still running old studiolive 24 rigs...I know them, they work, they are long ago paid for.

In fact I was pleased last year when I was asked to mix a church that had the new presonus 32sx, that I could record (Capture) on that board to the built in SD card feature. Take the SD card home, load it into my mac, firewire that back into the old studio live 24 to post mix  and drop box the end result back to the church.  So aside from old n paid for on my small shows, it has been nice to know that I can still utilize the older gear like that.

I don't "need" an M32 in my tool box, but I definitely want to be up to speed on them, and having one that I put in use on my rig might make me that much better for when I'm hiring out for day work.
