We went from an old analog mackie to an GLD112 and the improvement in sound was astonishing. We were not expecting that at all. Actually I ate crow on that one as I was championing the upgrade from a capability perspective, not a sonic one. Easy crow to eat though as it was a win win.

My perspective on this is to go with the 112 if you will ever use any more than 24 channels or so. You will eat up real state fast once you get your inputs setup and use any groups or any number of the effects rack slots. We were not able to financially pull the trigger on the 80 when it came out and feel very blessed now that that was the case. Had we ended up with the 80 and not the 112 managing some of our services would have been more difficult with the smaller console size.

either way these are slamming systems.
