    I’ve read through the documentation as well as a few threads comparing the two, but I’m specifically interested in those who’ve compared the two series from a recording perspective, not so much live.

    Let me know your thoughts. Considering selling my Qu-24 and getting an SQ5, mostly for on-location recording duties vs. front of house/live sound.

    Thanks

    For whatever it’s worth, I went from an QU25 to an SQ5, and I love it. I am a simple user, and use it for both a PA mixer and an audio interface for recording. Typically at 96KHz.

    I would imagine if you were recording both at 48khz there would be absolutely no difference (or not enough for you to hear?) in recording quality, however, at 96khz there will be.

    Well it’s all subjective. Some people can hear 96K, others cannot; I don’t know if I can. I think the preamps are better in the SQ, but I’ve been pretty happy with my Qu’s recordings/preamps and I have higher end external preamps from BAE, Heritage Audio, etc.

    Did you ever directly compare recordings made on the Qu vs. the SQ?

    Nobody can hear 96k, only If the 48k converters are Bad.
