Re: Buying a D32XD...
When it came to buying an all-in-one multitracker, I wanted to make my first buy the final one. So I did exactly what you posted. That I ended up with a Korg D32XD was due to the test results, and considering all the properties provided by it and its competition. I was a bit surprised myself. It was my first buy of that brand. My instruments, mics, amps, FX, and speakers as guitarist and vocalist are of fourteen different brands from all around the earth, but there had been not a single piece of Korg equipment in 26 years. Interestingly, seven years later my four all-in-ones still are my only Korg gear. My outboards are of another six brands, and I don't want to talk about cables and stands here.

And, of course, I would mention the restricted number of tracks in linear recording operation if it went about a Roland VS.
It is just the same as with cars, TV sets, washing machines, or refrigerators: Regarding different items, user's profile of demands, and the estimated budget, there is no such thing as the definite all-in-one multitracker for everyone and every given environment.
And as of mine, I added three D3200 later due to a change of personal demands which called for expansion in recorded tracks at once...
It is awesome which great machines we find today at affordable prices. Think of a competition about generation loss with even a very costly and most accurately adjusted analog tape recorder. It wouldn't have the slightest chance against any good digital all-in-one multitracker.
