A very desirable portable Neve available for about half of what you would have to pay for a Melbourne,, here is the owners description.
"The second console is 16-4-2 version in a more transportable chassis. Also to ‘Decca’ spec, it has 16 mic/line inputs, more or less identical EQ/aux's/pan etc. It has P&G faders, 4 busses, separate stereo buss.
Mic inputs are balanced, all outputs are transformer balanced. Direct transformer balanced outputs on every channel. Individual phantom power on rear panel. Great monitor section, 2 external stereo sources, flexible talk/comms, oscillator.
Main inputs/outputs are via XLR, the direct outputs & buss outs are on edac. There is an external breakout box which carries the stereo buss & 4 buss outs on XLR, and the stereo return and also 2 further stereo monitor returns with level controls. (These are the ‘4T Monitor Mix' knobs & cut switches above the blue buss faders). Hardwood arm-rest and end caps. Very compact (96cm(L) x 46cm(D) x 32cm(H). Still heavy - a 2-man lift. This console has 2 power supplies (silent) and is flight-cased. Some EDAC cables are included. Beautiful condition, very clean & well maintained. It all works! The module type is based on the 542, but is unique to this console - type 34154. "
