Just got back from school where we received the new Mackie Onyx 4880. There's only one word for it: amazing. Like all the reviews had said, "It's a $15,000 board for $6,000." Mackie finally realized the potential for the large-format, low price mixer. For the sake of preserving my good service I wont say how much I paid for the board, but I'll say I got it well below the MAP of $6199. The board itself is solid as a rock. The box had been ripped in a few spots, but the board didn't have a scratch on it. A bit heavy at 149 pounds and long at around six foot long. The features are nice: 4 seperate mute groups, individual control of phantom power, 4 band eq per channel, 8 subs, talkback input, and more. The sound quality is also very nice. I had to max out the trim and fader to get any noise out of an empty microphone cable and that could be the cable. Overall the board is sweet and I already name her: Lucy (I Love Lucy!). I also found out that the first shipment of these boards was going to the vendor we bought it from (djmart.com). And because we needed it ASAP (show next week), we had it drop shipped from Mackie, so therefore, we have the first publicly available Onyx 4880 board in the world. So sweet. If anyone has any questions about the board, please feel free to ask.
