There is a Brand New mixer up on E Bay right now ...It is a TASCAM ...Very nice quality...Make him an offer of more than $259 and I bet he will take it... Auction ## is 290352965894  All XLR an 1/4" ...I would love to have it but no MOOLA right now...

This Logitek rack mixer has XLRs and TRS phone jacks on the back, not 
bad.

Not sure that Euro or Phoenix connectors were around (or at least 
readily
available)�when these beasties were built. Strictly 1970's low tech.

And...

Consideration to rack placement is critical.� If access to the 
Logitek's top
cover is needed for maintenance and its obstructed, it means removing 
every
single wire to an array of=2
0screw-down barrier strips.� A better 
solution for
Logitek would have been to design a back-plane using miniature 
Euro-Block
connectors so that groups of plugs can be unplugged from a mating 
barrier
jack.� Need to remove the mixer from the rack?� No problem.� Just 
unplug a
few connectors and reconnect when maintenance is complete.

For most equipment, removing a few wires is not problematic.� But when 
you
consider the number of possible connections on the Logitek back-plane,
removing every wire can be a nightmare.� Fortunately for amateur radio
purposes, not too many of us need a lot of inputs -- unlike typical 
remote
broadcast demands.
