Jules, about the switces on 3124MB+?

I think I read that you have one of these. If you do, what do you think of the switches on the front - their durability, etc.? And have you ever been under the hood? If so, what about some of the parts in there - are they top notch or something else?

I have heard some stories that the 3124MB+ may (may) be lacking in these areas. If you know, what are your thoughts on this?

While I recomend it, I dont ashley have the mixer option.

Mine is an older unit with phantom on the back, no phase reverse

You remind me, I have a broken pot on my unit!

Are you nervous because the buttons look "plastiky"?

What you are really after is the API sound, build or how you get it dont bug me so much..

Perhaps someone else has more of an opinion.

The build quality is excellent. The switches stand up to not only studio applications, but the rigors of the road as well.

We have found several of these units good homes with independent engineers that travel on a regular basis... as well as tours and of course 'fixed studio installations'.

Failures can occur with any piece of equipment at damn near anytime... but our experience with API equipment is that if it works out of the box, it's going to work for a good long while...

I hope this is of assistance.
