I work on a recording studio that uses this mixing console with the Mackie HDR/24 hard drive and the mackie monitors HR8/24 or whatever the name is. All in all, I can say that if you have good microphones and good mic techniques then this console transmits faithfully what you've sent into it. It won't fake it. It's true that it's kinda bright sounding, definitely not plastic though... The only lack is the limiting 12 mic preamps. all in all things can get better but it's on the right road for mackie. Good job!

I've used my D8B everyday for over 2 years, with flawless results. My customers rave about the mixes and that is the bottom line for me.

i've had nothing but problem after problem with this desk. i just dont think mackie are ready for the digital console market.after having one for about a year i've just sold it to go back to a trusty reliable 02r. also i've heard both desks side by side & in my opinion the 02r has a much brighter punchy sound than the thin plastic brittle quality of the d8b. im sure the d8b will be up to scratch in the future, but ever heard the saying"life's too short to be a beta tester".

Liam Howlett apparantly swears by the D8B, which is endorsement enough for me.
