Potential purchasers should factor into the cost the fact that this will make you want to buy more mics to fill up those channels  ;)

looks cool, but can't imagine any tapers would have a need for 32 channels? even if you're running 4 sets of mics and a board feed (which is rather extreme to begin with), a mixpre-10T would serve just fine.

I've suspected as much for years but am now convinced SD has some sort of thing about only providing a limited number of standard-size XLR mic connectors on their multichannel gear.  Only 6 on this?  They couldn't fit just 2 more for 8?  Really?  I can rearrange the side layout in the photo to fit them in pretty easily.  Shift the headphone jacks down and make the side dimension of the unit just 3/8" to 1/2" longer and they will fit in line with the other 6.

Signed,
Guy who doesn't like having to use extra adapters for standard mic input.

"Mix-pre 10 does provide 8", notes the taper supervisor.

Potential purchasers should factor into the cost the fact that this will make you want to buy more mics to fill up those channels  ;)

I do want this so badly! However with that price $$$, I don't think it is on the cards for me this year.

The only thing which strikes me as very strange that I don't like (aside from the price! ha) is why so few AES inputs?? Odd for a recorder of this class in 2019

This deck isn’t for taper dudes. 😎 This is marketed directly to production sound mixers (film/video) like IronFilm.  Six full-size XLR mic inputs is all you need for film.  The balance of channels is likely to be wireless.  I wonder if this can simultaneously do playback while recording—that’s becoming a real set requirement that Zaxcom and Aaton can do.  Congrats to SD—this thing looks awesome, with a tiny form factor ta boot.

Price isn’t that surprising considering a new 788t goes for $6849.

Nice, but I don’t need that capacity.  And as noted, geared more for production sound.
