Just What the Doctor Ordered
by Adrian Carter from Miami, FLSo you mix and master, like using outboard gear, you may even have a small console to run things through...PRESTO! AVM 6x3 or 6x2 is for you. After hooking up all of my outboard pre's, comps, power su... read more [+]pply, and speakers, I quickly found everything well-suited for my needs.

Music Background: Mastering and mixing engineer
Pros: The desk is very well built. It's sturdy and has the cord management trough in the back that everyone will find very, very, very handy. The all black finish looks nice and professional; it's chic and very clean. The layout is also well-done, providing you access to gear controls in arms reach. Once placed where you want it to go and all rack gear is screwed in, this puppy locks into place -- sturdy. Bumping into the desk has no effect. Also, you can sit two speakers on the stand, i.e. Yamaha HS80 and HS50 bot fit. However, I recommend keeping your more powerful speakers a foot back on stands so transients can develop a little more. Lastly the size of the desk is a very comfortable size, it's not huge, it's not puny -- you can say it's what the doctor ordered.
Cons, maybe? The angle of the rack locations seems less than 45 degrees, which makes it a little challenging to see the names on the knobs...is that the release knob or attack knob? In the beginning I found myself standing over the desk to see what is what. But after a couple weeks I knew what knob was what and that kept me in my seat and centered. (The plus of that is it forces you to use more ears and less eyes after you've confirmed the knob you want to turn.) But raising the angle of the rack section would help a bit. Lastly, putting rack gear such as comps, pres, and eq's and all the cords along with it in the middle rack of the 6x3 will impede your knee or stretching out of your foot underneath the desk. So be mindful of how you want to use the middle rack section.
Consideration: There are two models, the 6X3 and the 6X2. Although Sweetwater only shows the 6x3, The 6x2 leaves the middle section open with no rack mounts, it's just the flat table. But it has ample space to fit my SSL X Desk (7U) or even my KORG microKONTROL midi keyboard. I strongly recommend the 6X2; Sweetwater sells the 6x2, they should place a picture of it as well. The 6x2 has given me a little more flexibility.
Recommendation: The 6x3 would be ideal if your using a fader pack or a small desk. However, in my situation the SSL X Desk is a 7U, but the AVM desk comes in 6U -- ARRRGGGGGGHHHH. Perfection is missed by an inch. It would be great if the company showed more flexibility and allowed for 6U-8U to be ordered. Their standard is 6U and anything different becomes a custom order. And that's pricey. But that makes the 6x2 more ideal depending on your preference.
I hope you find this review helpful. I've had the desk for about 3 months and I'm very satisfied with it. It's worth it with little hesitation. Four stars means Great! and it is a great desk. close [-]
