Definitely good to know, cheers!

Edit : Fostex 2016 - funny design (back panel inputs are phonos, but jacks on the front) but handy. Two busses as well. Cute.

I also heard rumours that they've been feeling the squeeze in recent months, and I too would heartily recommend going local if possible.

That's my approach nowadays, ever since I abandoned my 'good quality' mixing desk after it blew its PSU for the third time, and switched to plugging all my inputs directly into a multi-channel audio interface.
Although this setup initially felt less 'controllable without EQ and Aux sends on front of my fingers at all times, the difference in audio clarity was quite noticeable, and I haven't personally used a mixing desk since
