The A+H boards are great, but I have heard some horror stories coming out of
my line of work(Theater Sound) with them.  That being said the MixWizards I
hear good things about, and have never had a problem with them myself yet,
so I keep using them.  But they are also a bit more expensive than your
average mackie on the lower end(Not counting the 80 series Onyx which I
havent used yet, but definitly seems a good step up;)  Either way though the
EQ on the old Mackies was bad, even to my ears;)  But for that price range
they were one of the better ones out there as the A+H tended to be a bit
more expensive.
