Here's a really nice, lightly used broadcast console from Soundcraft. The photos show the actual item for sale.
This is an amazing device. Wonderfully over-engineered with totally reckless disregard for cost, the RM-1d integrates a digital audio router with a fully digital mixer and a Lexicon Effects engine/Dynamics Processor into a single, svelte unit. Any input can be routed to any mixer channel. Customisable channel legends are presented on a cool LED dot matrix display on each channel for easy identification of sources - and to allow different routing combinations to be recalled from memory.
This unit does just about everything short of browning the toast so there's a steep learning curve if you want to get into setting up all your digital processing to be handled within the console. Probably way too much for your minimum-wage 3x5 liner card reader to operate (but as I recall you can lock the configs from meddling fingers if required), but if you're looking for an esoteric, mother-of-all-consoles to be the centerpriece of your high end studio (but on a budget), then this may be the right choice for you. Read on for details of what $20 Grand bought you a few years ago...
For example the built in Lexicon Effects unit provides a range of effects such as Reverb, Chorus, Flanger, Delay etc. In addition it can handle dynamics processing within the mixer - taking care of compression, limiting, gating etc. So this one unit can replace a whole rack of pre-amps, compressors, audio signal routers, and effects equipment. All at an asking price that's less than a simple no-frills digital mixer. Of course there's also a fully featured integrated clock/timer unit. The unit works at any mains voltage between 90 and 240 Volts.

The flexible operating system of the RM1d allows any physical input, analogue or digital, to be assigned to any console input fader.
A pool of inputs is passed through a digital input router which can distribute that signal, via the Input 1/2 selector switch on the physical input channel strips, to the input faders. Once rocessed, the signal is passed through the digital output router, at which point it can be assigned to one of a range of physical output connectors on the back of the console. Digital signal input, output and all internal processing throughout takes place at 24-bit resolution and, if 16 or 20-bit output is required, dither is applied. On-board sample rate conversion (SRC), combined with Word Clock I/O, ensures that syncing is never a problem.
