    I'm reffering mainly to the soundcraft M series. And with the Allen & Heath, probably the mixwizard.

    i'm not asking which one is better. I'm pretty sure most people will say allen & heath is better. I'm asking if theyre worth the extra cash.

    Ive seen this post a gazillion times. Allen and heath baby.... If you want better look at crest audio. They make a compact board similar to the 14x4x2 Mix Wizard. Routing is going to be even with soundcraft or AH, but the pre's and eq's are better quality in the AH. The mix wizard pre's are good for drum tracking, headphone monitoring via aux sends and mix monitoring . I would have a good outboard pre for single tracking (vox,guitar,etc...)

    i have owned several Allen/Heath desks in my time and never had any problems except for wear. they are solid pieces built with well thought out circuitry.

    Some people may prefer Crest audio consoles opver Allen heath, but I for one am not one. My gig yesterday with Tesla just reconfirmed that belief. They used a Crest V12 ( Crest top of the line console). It was absoluteley horrid. The slightest little clip on the Crest resulted in horrible popping noises. Other Crest consoles are the same way. Other than that it functions OK, but that issue alone is enough for me to never touch one if at all possible. That is also why Crest never made or sold very many consoles, and why more often than not they are listed on riders as unacceptable and not reccomended.

    I am a SoundCraft M Series Mixer user. I really like the sound and the features of this mixer, especially the Digital Output. My only complaint is the Aux Sends are phono plugs as opposed to 1/4" plugs. That is really lame. I had to buy 1/4" to phono cables, not a big deal but just a stupid design.

    I have never used the Allen Heath Mix Wizard. However, after looking at the layout, it would not work for me. All of the connections are made in the back of this unit. I use my mixer on a recording desk and I am constantly changing inputs and using the Aux Sends for different outboard gear. If I had to turn that mixer around every time I wanted to connect something it would drive me nuts. Just my $.02.
