My church bought as temporary replacement for our dying Mackie VLZ until we can purchase the X32 and I have to admit I was surprised. The pre's are fairly transparent and the EQ's sound musical and warm. This console fits the bill perfectly for us. We are using all the inputs and sends this thing has and have not had a hiccup yet. (knock on wood.) We really love having a "B" main out that we can use prefader for our send for video streaming. You can not find this many features at this price range! Venice features on a budget! I'm not sure how it would hold up to the riggers of touring or gigging, but for install I think It's great.
