Could this next generation do even better? There was a brief manufacturing period when internal wire links became somewhat undependable, but this issue was resolved quickly and easily on those desks that suffered from it, and the reputation remained untarnished in the minds of most users, myself included. The manufacturers seem proud of the advances made, citing an improved mic preamp design, more refined EQ and improved mix-bus headroom. Although the VLZ Pro models punched well above their weight anyway, these are all areas in which they were, if you were to be really picky, a little weak. In fact, it always struck me that the remarkable quality of the original XDR mic preamps was let down by the rather average mix bus and limited headroom imposed by the rest of the mixer.
