The Sony MXP series consoles were direct descendants of the MCI 636 boards from which they evolved after Sony bought MCI. However, Sony had a grander vision (and presumably a lot more R&D resources) and made something with options galore. An open architecture meant lots of cool factory customizations, which is something you get when you can leverage the power of such an electro-industrial behemoth, back when these sorts of companies were neck deep in many more markets.
Who else has one? Jay Z has one. And I'm sure it looks nice. Also, Sear Sound has one, heavily modded with Avalon pre's and flying faders. Ours? Thought you'd never ask. We've got a load of JLM pre's, 2 John Hardy pre's and a Normophone- made by the guy who works with the infamous Steve Albini.
Remember the part about all those options? We have (almost) every type of EQ that was made for this console. Use the simple looking ones if you want the broader sweeter strokes of an old school inductor design and the semi parametrics for everything else. The fully parametrics can sound good too and allow for some drastic EQing, but can be very temperamental.
Also, this was a VCA fader console, so we converted a bunch of channels to regular audio faders, which pass cleaner and punchier audio.
