Yahama has now replaced their AW16G hard disk recording workstation with the new AW1600. The new model has a number of new features, but the key ones are eight combo inputs (versus two) and a USB interface for transfering data with a computer. Man I would have loved to have had those features for the past few years.
Looks like the old AW16G's have a "buy it now" price on eBay for about $500. Ouch. I was hoping for a higher trade-in value. I really would like to trade in my old model but it looks like I'll need to save up more than I thought I would.
