It might be a good idea to wait for the comparisons from those that own both units. Comparisons as you well know are going to be biased based on the feature set you are looking for.

Finally got my XR18 yesterday. Pretty cool little box.
I thought you were getting an X18?

Yeah, I changed it to the XR since they were more readily available. I didn't really need the tray in retrospect...

The first major bogusness I've run into is that aux sends can't be set to post fader, unless I'm doing something wrong. In fact it seems stuck only in one mode though there are several selections for the aux mode. Grrrr....

You're doing something wrong. There are many options, per channel and per aux. What OS editor are you running?

I'm using the Mac editor and the iOS app. Latest 1.09 firmware and 1.0 app. I go into the routing, and choose the post fader mode on Aux 6 to run aux subs. It seem to remain pre-fader.

P.S. it was a  bit rattling to have 6 double 18 subs jump into full tilt boogie ;)

Don't set it on the Aux. Set it in the sends on each channel. Post Fader on the Aux just means it's post the Aux master fader.

Yeah, that's what I'm figuring out. Now it looks like the iOS app doesn't have the setting like the desktop app. So only on the actual desktop version then?

And a big thanks btw!

At the moment, every OS is missing some feature. I do setups in MacOS, walkarounds on iPad, mix on MacOS and watch the meter screen on Android. They'll get it worked out.

At the moment it's like pre 1.4 of MF but when they get it right there's no stopping them. Go Uli and Co.

Apparently the iOS app doesn't have the ability to set up the buses that way. But the desktop editor app does. They're still working on getting parity across all the platforms.

Only Android has gain reduction meters on the meter overview page, or definable channel layouts. Every platform has and is missing something. They'll get there. What I hope they don't do is try to make them identical.

Well, ideally full functionality will have parity even if the GUI is different. Not having the aux bus mode options on the iPad is bad.

Well my XR18 has now a 175 days or 4200 hrs of run time (24/7). Recently I had crashes (2) after about 30 - 40 hrs of running. By that I mean there was no response to any messages send to it (Wireshark monitoring) until power cycled. Of course it has been cycled as I tested various connection methods and other things. It was however run for the most part in AP mode (Wifi). I currently use a Hawkins HAI15sc antenna. I get about 12 dBm (claimed 15 dBi) signal increase over the standard and it certainly has reduced disconnects to almost zero. Remember this is in a quiet environment (about 20 channels) not your usual gig scenario. I also gave it the same pin one test and it passed with flying colors (no audible hum). I use W7, Android and iPad control surfaces. All still need work. I've updated firmware once from 1.04 to 1.09. The apps on all platforms have been also upgraded as they became available. The one issue that may not get a resolution in the near term if not at all is their documentation. Specifically their "User Manual" a Wiki that currently is nothing more than a quick start guide. A lot of people are using this in live gigs but I would not consider it at present. To many issues in the software.
