The humor is Wayne-ing.

...I personally have no experience with the soundcraft with respect to reliability, but my Allen & Heath MixWiz and ZED10fx have both been solid as granite and are very good sounding boards.

FWIW, my Zed12fx dead dropped 4 feet onto its corner this week.  It sheared off the screw heads on one side of the mixer upon impact, but the mixer still works fine.

Cheers mark

hey everybody!

thanks for all your help

i have narrowed my 2 Mixer choices down to the Allen & Heath ZED14 or Soundcraft M8

both have excellent reviews
AAARRGGHHHHHHHHHHH CANT DECIDE!!!

is it true that the allen and heath has seperate channel strips, so that if a fault occurs, you just take out the 1 whole strip and replace it or fix it, where as most desks are 1 complete PCB block

i like the idea of the Allen & Heath single strip for easy fixing!

Not to further muddy the waters, but I'm not sure that degree of modularity makes a significant difference unless you're returning the modules to the factory for service.

After owning or maintaining several large frame, modular consoles over the last 25 years, I can only think of a couple occasions where we swapped out input or output strips, and neither of those were at a gig.

You've got good choices, pick the one offering the form factor that makes sense for your on stage setup and transport.
