The Soundcraft PSU problems went away (mostly?) when they got Schubert Systems to design the Series FIVE PSU. In fact, it was a selling point at the time.

Old-tyme Labsters will remember JR opining on this topic at that tyme.

So Iggy, why don't you just break down and buy the damn thing?  You're  an outsider looking in, giving advice to everyone else who is actually in the game!

If you have me on your IGGY list, why bother replying to me at all?

I intend on purchasing a digital mixer; however, I am still waiting on the X32 Rack to arrive in stores as well as the X32 Producer.  I have yet to put my hands on the Qu-16, and even if I did, the current state of their released firmware does not support many features that the mixer is supposed to have ..... and that frankly will make the mixer a much more attractive product.

I currently have a really nice analog setup with a MixWiz, ACP88, Furman IEM's, and a M-OneXL which has served my band well for over 10-15 years (I have actually lost count).  I can wait for things to shake out on the initial release before I buy.  I fully expect whatever I buy to last me another 10 to 15 years, and I want to be sure I am OK with what I get.

Scott, I'd be interested in the make/model of that device.  Sounds quite handy, especially the ability to load the circuit.

Corey,

No problem.  I'll jot it down at work and post it for you.

FWIW I am not sure if I would plan for 10-15 year service life from circa 2013 low end digital mixer. Kind of like computers and Iphones, even if it still works in 2025 not sure you will still want to use it. :-)

In 5 years, Behringher will release a new board, the Zy32-Ultra-Producer-Lite.
It will have "Otto-Toon-Pro" on every channel.

The wildly successful board will be partially designed by someone who used to be good and built on a disused Fiat assembly line by drones using the cheapest parts available in the solar system.

The board will self terminate after 3 gigs assuming it hasn't failed yet.

It's backers will credit it for curing global warming.

Yep, I plan on about three years.  By then I'm sure my new Expression3 will be obsolete.  In 15 years the concept of a physical mix service might be considered quaint!

You may be right JR.

I am quite adept at keeping electronics equipment working ;)

Of course, it is a little different with digital mixers.  I can fix anything on my MixWiz 2 with parts I can order and receive in 24 hours from DigiKey, and the faders are still in production on their current model.

Once the motorized faders specified by the current incarnation of the X32 are no longer produced ..... kinda hard to fix that.

Honestly, that one issue has me thinking that the X32 Rack may provide the most robust offering of any digital mixer in this price range.

Considering that Behringer are still making their previous generation of motorized faders (BCF2000) and those seemingly have been around forever, I hardly think lack of the current generation faders is ever going to become an issue. (unless of course it becomes a classic vintage console that some will try to keep going forever  ;) )

How about a 26" touch screen JR? Although, I would probably miss the feel of a good fader.
