no PROFESSIONAL engineering would buy that in their right mind! i used the desk they record tons of metallica records..so what. vintage gear is a pain in the ass, tack an extra $50k a year just for maintenance.. that poor band just wasted a ton of money, suckers.
here's a guy that doesnt know much about audio engineering, everyone. people still use and buy consoles all the time, every major recording studio has one. every single one.
