    Get a Soundcraft ES, about $400 US, 10 + 4, awesome eq's and XLR, 1/4" Balanced TRS, awesome summing bus :)

    In my research, everything else in the price range sounds like dog doo. Pony up the extra money and get the Soundcraft, trust.

    yer i agree about the soundcraft desk.. its worth waiting till you`ve got the cash to go all out otherwise you`ll be pissed when you have to sell it at half the price and by a bigger desk...(past experience

    I would 100% agree with the above but i think you might as well save a bit more, once you start using the desk for effects etc you will soon run out of channals. Ive got a 24 channal Mackie which cost £400 of ebay and I Doubt I will need to upgrade for a long time. :tut:
