It's beautiful. All three input jacks are two-way, which is also sort of cool. It's a shame that they are 1/8", though. It also seems like the controls might make stealth difficult. €1500...

This seems to be what Gutbucket has been dreaming of.. too bad the form factor seems so goofy for taping purposes.
And yikes on the price??!!

If those parts are not metal, then I bet they break off. Even if they are metal it looks like it will break.

I was thinking the exact same thing. Gutbucket has asked for this device to be created for his specific use case for years.

Not totally sure (manual is vague) but looks like you might be able to connect that TX-6 mixer to the TP-7 for a total of twelve inputs?
Audio: Countryman B3 + AT853(hypers/cards/subcards) + SBD feeds
Wireless Receivers: Lots of those
Antennas: Lots of those
Cables: Lots of those
Recorders: TE TX-6, Zoom L20R, Zoom F8, (3) Tascam 680, (3) Tascam 2D, Zoom H6, and a graveyard of irivers/nomads/minidiscs.

way more likely is it just feeds the 6 channels into the recorder with an analog front end.

Agreed. Although looks like the TX-6 mixer could connect to an iPhone as a DAW, and then record six stereo inputs from that. Manual is a bit unclear, but it can record to a USB thumb drive but I read somewhere it could only do stereo for that (boo).

Interesting, thanks for the heads up!  Will have to look into this more as a 6-channel followup to the DR2d.  Haven't followed the link yet but wonder if it provides PIP? and if so, if it provides sufficient voltage to properly power miniature DPAs?

Teenage Engineering products are so insanely priced. When I've seen the release videos for some of them, I feel like it's satire. But they are serious.

I still have the original OP-1 and can't justify the prices for any of their newer products. I am just curious on those inputs and if you can run multiple inputs at once.

Yep.  Ridiculously overpriced, like this: https://teenage.engineering/store/field-desk

If anyone is going to record a show with this I sure hope that rocker can be disabled.  That's a bad accident waiting to happen.
