This was the first really expensive mixer I bought, I paid well over a grand for it in the early 80's!
GLI3990 really nice to use when it worked , but you needed a bike to get from one end of the crossfade to the other (this is a downloaded pic)
 
 
Citronic SM607 still hard to beat for sound quality from the days when citronic made quality kit!
about the mid 70's

Great idea for a topic
I tried to bid on that Soundout mixer was prepered to go to £100 for it  That is rare as ****
But the seller wouldnt answer emails and it was collection only
I picked up this one on Ebay recently  Citronic Trent II mixer well used as can be seen
 
I collect old Citronic gear  This one was a great addition to my collection worked perfect just a few noisy controls

Thats part of a Trent console it should have a SL1200 of either side of it on a metal frame?
the trent was a great idea from citronic but it failed because the muppets didn't put a crossfade on the mixer?
I modified a couple of these by removing the deck stars (which no one bothered with anyway) and cut a crossfade in place of them, bit crude but it worked!

Could this be the first ever GLI?
This has to be the perfect mixer for the red line Dj!
 
And these were quite popular in the disco's in london in the 70's
 
 
Couldn't really have a vintage mixer thread without one of these, I have used one, installed 3, but never owned one this has to be the mixer most Dj's want, and even though I've sold off most of my kit if one comes along I'm having it! I have a plan to got out for a drink with jblman get him pissed and get this one when his defences are down!! Lol

Just out of interest do you have a picture of either the system 80 or cs rack? if so could you post them? Ta! Col.

As colin says,the Supernova..one of only 300 made,this is in the rare factory-built case/plinth..most were sold just as a chassis...it also has the Penny and giles fader option.
 
Another from the collection....Simon Harris' Formula sound PM80 with crossfader module,Simon used to take this in lots of clubs in the 80.s.Chris Hill,Pete Tong and Robbie Vincent all played though this mixer.
 
Citronic Tamar console with the "microprocessor" auto fade gizmo...
 
And of course an Avon (same as a Hawaii,but with built in 2x150w amp),probually the best all-round Citronic console of the 80's.
Be seeing you.

PPX450 £679.00
PPX800  £819.00

Funny to think they cost all that money back  22 years ago Sort of compares to the top range QSC stuff nowdays
