Place my order with Rat Sound for the X18 today. ETA is mid February. Price well below what I'm seeing online. I suspect I'll be lucky to see it by March. We shall see...

I checked in with Rat Sound on the X-18 order. They said it looks like the ship date to me will be Feb 28th. Fingers crossed...
Got my XR18 on the 21st of Feb. now running it thru the gauntlet. ;) Fan add on is already a requirement. Screwdriver is next but the results won't be given here.

Looking forward to your report.  Fully expect you to complain at full volume about any minor shortcomings. Enjoy.

I think he might be hinting that this forum is supposed to be about DL mixers and their usage, that's what I come here for anyway. Not for intimate details of peoples private lives/vehicles/health etc. or for in depth studies of Uli's latest marvel.

Yup that's what I thought. The question is 'which forum will he post his XR18 post-mortem on?' :)

I suspect he might go so far as to tell us that.

I simply don't believe even the DL32 and DL1608/806 should be under the same title. It just makes more of a mess than it already is. Can't find anything without a lot of wasted time. I certainly wont put X-Air or X32 stuff into that title or for that matter under the category Mackie.  ;D RR doesn't want to add titles for these mixers, his choice. ::)

I for one look forward to hearing about the X18R in detail. Based on the title of this thread, and the fact that it's a competing product, I don't see why it couldn't be posted here. I still love my DL but the X18 is very interesting.

Behringer actually has an official forum:
http://forum.music-group.com/forumdisplay.php?113-X-AIR-General-Discussion
While info about "the competition" is welcome here one is liable to see a whole lot more over there.
There's also info about the X32 series here:
http://forum.music-group.com/forumdisplay.php?6-Digital-Mixers
Most of my own competition has gone that way - to the X32 Rack (direct competitor to the DL1608 IMO) or above.

TBF RR the X32 Rack is twice the size of the DL, but has twice the capability inside, if not in terms of I/O (22 in, 14 out). I'd still recommend a DL to a digital mixer virgin, the app is far and away the best out there but X32 app is serviceable. What you can't do with the DL is add a few extra channels. I already have an X32 Compact and will buy a Rack soon as I need to build a scalable system. I'll use the X32 Compact & Rack for bigger gigs (hiring in S16 if I need more channels) down to X32 Rack alone for my pub/bar gigs (the DL does these with style, and in a smaller box but compromises must be made and X32 Rack makes the DL redundant sadly).

Hi pytchley,

I think I have to disagree with you, what's the point of taking advice from people if you don't have a little knowledge of their background and the type of gigs they do, type of Person they are and  even the car they drive, etc, when someone tells you product x y or z is great you take this info in, to digest it, when they say product x y and z is great and it sounds great through the pa that fits on the back of their motor bike, I would argue this additional information is useful in pertaining whether the advice this person offers carries any weight or not.

To ignore comments from people using  and comparing mackie and other manufacturers gear, absolutely crazy imho.

Cheers

Kev

I had cereal for breakfast today btw.

I view this forum and a sort of virtual technical seminar, including the tea breaks. Most of the chat is related to the DL series but there are a number of posts about peripheral matters like the competition and about personal stuff (just like the stuff you'd talk about on the tea break/in the bar afterwards at a real conference) it's all interesting (or if it's not I skip it and move on). :)

Or "Water Cooler" talk at the office.  This is a great forum.  :thu:
