"I have had a great time with the D5 on monitors for Anastacia.It sounds warm and natural, and the fact that it is so intuitive to get around means that I can keep my eyes on Anastacia and the band, and not have to look down too much. There is quite a big dynamic range between her songs, from gentle piano-based ballads to full-on rock, and so the thing that really stood out for me was the snapshots - they are so versatile and user-friendly, I could not have done it without them. It is a fantastic desk, and I really enjoy using it!"
"DiGiCos interface is a breeze to navigate and having the ability to customize the control surface by reordering banks, channels, and screens quickly is of great benefit."
"Once we got through the basics and I was able to actually hear my mix through the SD7paired up with a db J-Series rig, I was very, very pleased with how it sounded. It was a welcome moment of clarity in a mess of flavor-of-the-day consoles and PAs"
"We have always wanted the best and the D5 is truly in a class of its own. Settling for anything else would have been a compromise."
"As a monitor console, it is great. The onboard graphic EQs sound great and are very easy to control. It is a great benefit to everyone that you can leave those big racks of outboard EQ in storage."
"This is the first digital console that has a great sound, plenty of headroom and it sounds perfect, even when you fill out all the channels. The console is also very user friendly, so that even a beginner in digital audio mixing world can dig into it immediately."
