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'.

Here's the block diagram for the 833.

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