Ok, we keep dancing around this one. Let's have it out once and for all. You've got about $3000 to spend and you need a reliable console. What are you going to buy? NSI, Zero88, Dove, EDI, Colortran, Lightronics, Strand 100/200/301 series, P.C. based, ETC Smart Fade, Leprechaun... Rules: -You ARE NOT allowed to answer ETC Express/Expression/Obsession or Strand 300/500 (you only have $3000 to spend!). -You ARE NOT allowed to answer USED Express or Strand 300. -No Bashing or flame wars... stay on topic. (Yes Van you can say you don't trust NSI and tell us why, but I want to focus on the products you DO like and why.) -Focus on ease of use, reliability, and feature bang for the buck.
