For anyone that needs 10 Mic pre amps and an affordable machine with great build quality this is the best option and it is only $1800.00. Below is what Sound Devices has to say about the machine:
The World’s Smallest 10-Input/12-Track Recorder
The MixPre-10T is the newest member of the groundbreaking MixPre Series of recorders, mixers, and USB audio interfaces. This lightweight, 10-input/12-track recorder offers world-class sound quality, flexible powering, and built-in, highly accurate timecode generator/reader – perfect for production sound mixers, field recordists and sound designers.
I would agree 100% since we already have the flagship recorder from Sound Devices the 688 we aren’t adding this to our inventory but it is a great machine at a great price point
