Sound Devices 552 Review
Sound Devices 552 Production MixerGotham's own Cory Allen puts the new Sound Devices 552 through its paces.

442 Discontinued

With the introduction of the 552, the 442 is officially retired. Here's what Sound Devices' Jon Tatooles had to say on this solemn occasion on the RAMPS newsgroup:†

It is with excitement and reflection that I put the very last two 442 mixers ever produced into our "museum" (a shelf in an equipment† cabinet). They join the first product Sound Devices ever produced, an† MP-1 (1999). The 442 is now discontinued, but will continue to thrive† with the many units that are in regular use all over the world.†

Farewell 442! Gotham salutes your years of service!

Itís in the Can! Food Drive
