You have a point GJ, and I think the same way. I have the Audya 76, Pa4X, SD40, SK1, and S970 gig ready. At this point, it is not which is better, because the audience seems to enjoy whatever I take out. However, they are all different in styles and sounds. Yes, I know I could have one board and strive to " "Make It My Own", but I spend countless hours getting an instrument gig ready, and my pleasure in doing so outweighs any practical negatives. At seventy seven, time is marching on too fast, but thank God I am in great physical shape-NOW.
