I'm looking to move up from my old beloved Tascal M-308B to a larger board. There are three in my area that I am interested in, and I was hoping to get some advice and impressions on these.
The boards in questions are:
1) Tascam M-520. 20 inputs. This is the board that I am most familiar with of the three, seeing as I've been using the M-308B. I really like the versatillity of these, and I believe that the mike pres and EQ are a step up from the M-308B. I think I'd be pretty happy with a Tascam M-520, but I'd like to know about these two:
2) TAC Scorpion. 16 inputs. All I know is that these have something to do with Amek. I don't expect this to be an Amek, but I'm curious about it.
3) Soundcraft 4000B. 16 inputs. All I know is that this is a British board, and as such may have good mic pres and EQ.
Obviously the Tascam M-520 has an advantage of having 4 more inputs than the TAC or the Soundcraft; however, I can do with 16 inputs if the sound quality of the board is better. I know these are all older, old school boards, but that's cool with me. So, how do you rank these?
Thanks very much for your help!
