I think Mercenaryaudio.com has the best service.

(If the price is within 10-15% of others, who gives a ****)

Seems like the price for non-Brit EL-8's hovers around $1,200 on eBay. A pair recently sold for $2,125, which is a great price.

I just picked up a new one with brit mod for 1450'ish. According to the sales people I spoke with, EL issued a couple of contradictory price changes and it created a bit of chaos for awhile. I would definately try to score one soon.

Are Mix farms scarce now?

That would suck 'cos I plan to expand my Mix system eventually. I don't want to take the HD plunge until necessary, which could be awhile.

Mix farms seem to be holding their price pretty well, better than I thought they might by now. I don't know how often they turn up second hand. I bought an extra card last year pre-HD, the price seems to have GONE UP since then.

I believe Digi is making them scarce by buying back stock from dealers, and through upgrade programs

Prices do seem to be going up
I'll probably end up with an expansion chasis and a bunch of DSP farms since they seem to be going down

I'd still like at least one used mix farm

Hmm, prices of Mix farms going up... I don't like the sound of that! These transitions from one PT generation to the next are never very smooth.

Regarding Distressor prices, I can recommend Pacific Pro Audio in Seattle, Wa. (800-932-7524) They have amazingly good prices on everything, to the point that the fellow at Studio Tech Supply wondered aloud to me how they could afford to sell some items for so low.

If you want a doubled warranty and reasonable (but not great) prices, try Mercenary.

I don't work for Pacific, or have stock in their company, or a girlfriend who works there, or money hidden in a safe under the store (well, they might have some of my money there, but...). Just a happy customer.

Jax, that's just my general experience/impression. I haven't spent real time researching it or anything!
