Well its not very often these come up - I think there are only 5 or 6 left in the world! So its no wonder this recent ebay auction ended early - probably some megastar bought it for their living room. The current bid was £14k with loads of bidders when it got pulled... and more info on this out there?

Neve 54 Series

This was recently being sold by Primal Gear (I think, it came from the Sphere Electronics mailing list I am on, who I think were bought out by Primal...?) Anyway its a lovely little 16 into 4 into 2 mixer that was going for $14k (£8k). These are late 70s broadcast desks really, so the mic pre-amps are not as good as the 80 series (what are?) but it would be a great little mixdown desk for most projects
