We all know the Urei is a very special mixer and soundwise still one of the best, but its been discontinued for over 14 or 15 years now and its not like parts are readily avalable. I would think at some point Gary wwould be left with no choice but to start using a a mixer that is currently in production and has a WARRANTY as a new piece.
Why do you say there a problem getting parts (readily avalable)? Parts are accessible and I stock most of them. I stated that there is a staff there that could change out any mixer, & GSA could and has installed many types of mixers in there sound systems. You also state what if a mixer goes down? What if the Rane goes down do you think they want to send it in for a warranty repair that could take months to repair. I have repaired a few Rane 2016a in the past few months, any mixer could go down and to this day GSA has not seen a mixer go down that the night could not go on.
Merry Christmas & Happy New Yaer
