Dugan won't help most of us at all, but if you're mixing a panel of speakers, it's fantastic.

I own a 633.  Fabulous machine.  833 is the next step up from that.

I was thinking that it would go the other way, too.  I am a bit surprised that the 833 doesn't do 32-bit float-point recording like the MixPre II line.

Otherwise, the difference in flexibility and features between the MixPre and their top-line units is very apparent.

where are the analog inputs for channels 7 and 8? Perhaps X1 and X2 on the output side? 6 Preamps is great.

I love the digital in and out on this machine, for me, this is the greatest benefit to this over the mixpre6

I found the 633 to be way more intuitive than the MixPre-6.  And I ran the MP6 for a while.  Just sayin'.

4x XLR inputs allows me to do ambisonics with the 833, which the 633 couldn't do

If you're patching out of a SBD, you only need 1 XLR, for the 633/833 will spread the sound to both left & right ISO channels internally.  Luv this feature, for most SBDs I patch out of are mono anyways.

Is it just me or was the 2nd half of this video shot in complete darkness making it impossible to see what is happening. I can see the unboxing during the first half of the video but once the sun goes down it becomes hard to watch.

Yup, sorry about that, I talked for a lot longer than the ten minutes or so that I thought I would! And the sun set faster than I thought as well.

There wasn't much to be seen anyway as I'm just holding the recorder in my hands while I talk about it. (aside from when I comment about the little hidden port, but then again I assume anybody who has been following the 833 already knows about that hidden feature! And the possibility this is for a future "SL4")

The 833 can record in 32 bit!

Pro line stuff.  Nice to see that they are continuing to support that cohort.  R&D development from this and the Scorpio May trickle down to the Mixpre line.

I was thinking that it would go the other way, too.  I am a bit surprised that the 833 doesn't do 32-bit float-point recording like the MixPre II line.

Otherwise, the difference in flexibility and features between the MixPre and their top-line units is very apparent.
