    Yes buy it, but only so you can add it into your signature

    I prefer the DB4 EQing over the 92 (or anything else, for that matter). The slope on iso mode is a great fit for me and I love having the ability to isolate specific sounds with filter mode.

    As for comparing software EQing... There is no comparison. Listened to some old mixes that I did purely on software recently and the difference was much more noticeable than I had expected. EQing with the DB4 is very smooth and the myriad of filter-stacking choices makes it easy to find a style that works for you.

    As I've said before, its the best mixer I've ever owned, but if you have no intention of using the massive feature set you'd be better served with a 92 and $2000 to spare.

    That demo unit is back up on ebay but give them a call and they'll hook you up with a new one; apparently they've got a sale this week only for that price. How do I know? We'll see in a week or so when I accept delivery :-O Yes I finally pulled the trigger after drooling over it for over a year; I'll let you all know how I like the taste of Ramen noodles.

    I know this isn't helping you in your original goal to be convinced not to buy it, heh....

    isn't the db4 a fully digital mixer? so the eq's are also "software" like the features on all other dvs (=getting the midi-value from the encoder and calculate the soundchanges fully digital in the dsp's?) or i'm an uninformed idiot? ;D

    is comparing the analog 92 features with the digital db4 features really reasonable?

    would have been a better explanation!

    (although the word gay has nothing to do with homosexuality, just that other people uses the word as a insult since they do not think the behaviour of "prylbögen" is approved.
