IN AN "AS NEW" CONDITION
Audients are made like no other console : they are made in such a way whereby each set of 12 channels of components, switches and pots are fitted onto 2 PCBs with another PCB for the 12 mic amps, as the replaceable PCBs house all of the components as well as the switches and pots, changing them virtually changes a used console into a new one. The only parts which are not replaced on the channels are the knobs and switch caps.
When the PCBs have been replaced, (as is the case with this console) all that is left of the original console are the knobs, switch caps and metalwork, after the PCBs have been changed you have a new mixer, virtually ! The other features which have not been changed but serviced are the faders and meters.
Imagine that : You can turn a used ASP 8024 into a virtually new console in just a few hours
Of course you will not have to do that with this console for another 10 years or more as it has already been upgraded in the Audient factory.
Console specs :
24 channel In Line console with 56 inputs.
Microphone Pre-Amps renewed using new pcb's
14 aux sends, renewed using new pcb's
24 groups plus a stereo Mix Bus with a master stereo compressor on the stereo output.
Cosmetics : wood work upgraded to current spec and looks much better than the original wood finish
IT IS NOT JUST THE COMPONENTS THAT HAVE BEEN CHANGED IT IS THE POTS AND SWITCHES TOO
The console electronics PCBs have been replaced with new ones, not just a recap, all channel components have been replaced including the mic amps. In short apart from the knobs and switch caps plus the metalwork this is almost a new console.
They hove not forgotten the power supply, it has been recapped and fitted with a new transformer.
Cosmetically this mixer has been fitted with the current black arm rests and end cheeks looking similar to the current models. So not only does it perform like a new console, it looks the part too.
BARGAIN PRICE - £8,500 ( for uk customers add 20% vat - no vat charged on exports )
