24 channel mixing consoles
Ive been looking at older allen and heath onsoles like the saber and gs3 series and also the soundcraft ghost desks second hand on ebay and wonder if any one here has had experience of these consoles.
Any tips advice and feedback would be greatly appreciated.
cheers in advance

Has anyone got any suggestions on mixing consoles that would have a very similar functionality as this desk - as it does tend to have all the features i need for its requirement ie, 24 channels, direct outs etc but would have better sounding mic pre's and a more useful eq??? I dont mind having an older console or indeed buying second hand - i just want to make sure i get a desk which is going to give me a clear difference in quality to justify spending out.
Used Mackie 8-bus.

Godin, Axon, Tonelab, Repeater & the skin of my teeth!
The cost of manufacturing decreased dramatically between the time that the Saber was made and your Behringer was made so you may not notice as much improvement in sound quality as you might expect. The major gain is that the older desk will feel more solid and have a few extra facilities.
When I was looking at consoles like this I was also looking at Soundtracs, Soundcraft and others.
