Well, as a reviewer, new gear shows up often. I am desperately trying to find a replacement for the sound of my Meridian 861, and WANT the new codecs, hell, I'd settle for PCM input, but the 861 doesn't do either yet. I have been going for broke trying to demo and evaluate all the newest pre/pro's to see what is the best out there, and will keep at it until I either hear them all or find what I am looking for, or Meridian releases a new 861 that does what I want.....
