WHAT???  Pics or I don't believe it, lol.  How did you score that situation?

Can't say, for the moment. All will become clear in time. :)

It's a very solidly built piece of kit, with some very convenient features and in general very well though out. The workflow takes a little bit of getting used to if you are not familiar with the A+H way of things, but it gets pretty speedy once you get it under your fingers.

If it's getting in your way, you can post it to me!


Steve.

Duly noted, Steve. Hahaha. I did have to move it for dinner last night.

 I went locally and looked at an SQ-5 two weeks ago.  Workflow was good.  I'm waiting to find out when these will be available.  I'm planning on putting two in at my church.  I'm guessing you live in the UK.

I live in the U.S. The console is not available for sale anywhere as far as I'm aware. I'm not sure what the anticipated ship date is but I will ask.

This particular console was on the floor at InfoComm, which is all I'll say for the moment.
If there are workflow or feature questions, however, I'd be happy to answer them.

EDIT: For clarity, I do not work for Allen & Heath, or their distributors.

Awesome!  Musicians Friend is showing availability 8/4.  I won't be buying from them, but i hope that's a good indication of release.  I was impressed with the 5.  It felt like a very solid console.  I was hoping that the touch screen would allow touch EQ adjustment.  The SQ-5 I played with did not allow that.  Maybe a firmware upgrade down the road will allow that.

I have an SQ6 sitting next to me at the moment. I agree about the workflow taking a bit of getting used to. But I don't find it all that speedy even after playing with it before.

What firmware is on the one yo have is it the standard available or is it a beta version?

This SQ6 is going back to the dealer real soon.

v1.2.2 r2408 which is the latest publicly available, I believe.

My workflow-to-beat is the Midas Pro2C. I love the way the desk really "comes to you." But I think this desk would do a decent job of staying out of my way, at least, once I learned it.

And, the next update addresses the commonly understood issues.

Hi Rob-
Yes, that's what I am hearing... it looks like most/all of the things I suggested to them had already been suggested, which is a good sign.

Someone let me know when these things are actually a step up from a GLD, apart from a few minor niceties.
