new urei 2-channel digital mixer w/ sampler

urei has a new 2-channel digital mixer w/ digital sampler coming out this march called the 1601S and we (justin and i) are extremely excited about it. check this out:

if this new urei mixer sounds as good as its bigger brother the 1620 then soundcraft is going to have another winner on its hands.
this mixer is SMOOTH. check out the specs here. will have this mixer available for sale sometime in march, 2005.
