Default anyone still using, and embracing, the Allen and Heath Zed r16

Anyone still using one regularly?

Im trying to take my setup to 16 tracks and im kind of done with my m-audio profire. I like the look of these for keeping things simple on a 16 track 96k recording.
there doesnt seem to be any discussion on these in the forum over the past few years, and i was wondering a few things that some users might be able to chime in on:

Still holding up ok? Competitive tech wise and sound wise?

Enjoyable to record with, or problematic in any significant way?

is there anything in this price range that is performing the same or better?

Thanks for any input. I think im about to pick one up and just thought id give the trusty forum a chance to chime in about it..

I don't miss the thin sounding mic preamps and general lack of headroom in an A&H console one little bit! The "Zed" products are their budget line and what I've heard are truly awful sounding.

I also agree that M-box is much worse.

Thats cool. Do you have experience with this specific item, or is that just a generalized A&H thing?
