This is an extraordinary piece of professional audio gear. You probably know that already if you've been cruising the reviews on line.
What you may not know is how wonderful it is to work directly with the Sound Devices factory in the remote event you ever need a repair. My 302 suffered some pretty bad abuse at the hands of the prior owner and SD fixed everything, updated the firmware and even painted the scratches in the case- all for such a low price that I'm embarrassed to pay so little for such world-class customer service and repair service. (They wouldn't accept a dollar more, I tried!)
So go ahead and buy this mixer, as well as any other SD product you might need, secure in the knowledge that if anything happens to your device, the crew at SD will always be there to make it work again.
This company is in the US (Wisconsin) and you're not supporting a faceless international conglomerate.
