The first and some still say the best affordable digital console with full automation of all parameters.

Yamaha have been making digi consoles for years now and they really got it right with this one. It's a breeze to use - easier with the meter bridge but can sound pretty good.

Lots of I/O options make it very flexable with 4 expansion slots.

There are other desks about that cost less and may have other bonusses to them - I personally prefer the 03D but I use the 02R a lot.

Good Points
Facillites, size, connectivity and the fact that it is a standard desk used in many places
Bad Points
Parameter access way of doing things may not be your cup of tea, could do with a little more status lights - eg is the dynamics module on. Memory management is a little cumbersome but you can get editors for them...
