Luckily the correlation between musical quality and visual
quality isn't always that big :)

Its very nice, and it's rack mountable, which is a big plus.

Yeah, hence the phenomenal prices.

That would be nice.
They can throw out all the stupid tubes and put in DSPs instead.
(who had the idea to put a tube onto a mainboard ???)

nice :) haven't tried it yet, but will do.
I hope the upcoming kernel release will be good to us,
though I think Paul recently raised some issues which still
had to be addressed ?

If we need to start lobbying, now is certainly the time
to get fixes in till 2.6 ... (of course nothing really big,
but maybe there is small stuff which needs to be fixed too ?).
Don't have much time now to test the 2.5.x series though :(
