You'll be wanting to get a copy of the January edition of SOS, then -- in the shops very soon! :D Our Sam has done the honours, and he was impressed with it.

And to answer your question... You'll get useful change from £2500!

I feel some commerce coming on...

The review is live!

And yes, a most impressive product. If it wasn't for the hard 12-channel input limit for recording I think I would have definitely bought one, and I'm still seriously considering it.

That does look very interesting indeed. I expected a higher price as well.

Sorry -- got caught up in the Worcestershire Anti-Logical Lookback In Error time-dilation vortex for a while there... it was in the December issue, of course! :headbang::headbang:

No it wasn't, you're not going mad... it's going to be in the January issue, but we have published the review early online to coincide with the release.

I fear there are plenty who would disagree with you there, Sam! :lol:

Excellent, now if "B" can just bring out a Big Bix for a tenth of the price I'll be interested. ;)

Ignore the post count, I have no idea what I'm doing...

The fixed frequency EQ (particularly HF) is a minor disappointment, but other than that this looks like the 'one box' solution that I was hoping the SiX was going to be.

I see one of these in my future...
