The AR (and now AB) AudioRacks are probably essential items when considering a GLD system as the mixers have only a handful of I/O connections on the rear panel. The QU mixers all have the full complement of XLR mic preamps on the back, many people will plug direct into these or use existing copper snakes and sub-boxes. Of course it’s sometimes advantageous to be able to hook up via cat5 for remote I/O too! in which case being able to use the A&H AudioRack inventory is a cool feature of the QU range but I wouldn’t directly compare prices against the QU mixers alone. Being able to plug in ME-1 personal monitors to the dSnake port on a QU is also worth considering in terms of your investment in A&H technology as it can handle all the inputs and mixes of the QU in a single cable.
