Because this console has the best warm analog sound :)
the best, huh? they sound pretty good and all, but THE BEST? What about good 'ol Rupert Neve? Api? Trident's fabulous A Range boards? The SSL 4000E through Gs are my favorite SSLs, but you trade some 'arm analog sound' as you call it for functionality and amazing routing capabilities. The 4000 boards were designed for film mixing, you know, so surround is really their area of expertise. I don't do 5.1. I am not trying to hard time you, but it just felt like an uninformed opinion here.
