Default Is a MIX system still worth hanging on to?

Hello all, pretty old system I know. 13 slot expansion chassis fully loaded.
Put so much effort in building it back in the day.

Maybe it's worth something sentimentally to you, but then why would you be asking.

Only thing to consider is; do you have sessions done in SD II file format? If so, then you might hang onto the basics to open and convert old sessions. When I had my studio in Nashville, I kept a G4/Mbox 2 Pro in the closet for just that purpose(though I did only use it once or twice). Otherwise, I'm with Darryl
HP Z4 workstation, Mbox Studio

The better I drink, the more I mix

BTW, my name is Dave, but most people call me.........................Dave

Last year I donated a turnkey MIX3 system to charity.

Sadly, its weakest part is computer hard drive. If it breaks and you don't have a cloned spar waiting, it is not worth finding a new old stock hard drive and re-install everything.
What we do in life, echoes in eternity.
