Actually, it's the FC200 and it works extrememly well if you can get over
the display limitation.  Also, it should cost $200-250.

Right now, Manny's can special-order a new PC1600x for under $300.  Or
they have the previous model, the PC1600, in stock for ~$280.  (You can buy
an OS upgrade for the PC1600 to bring it current with the PC1600x.)  Go to
the Peavey web site to check out the feature list on this pup.  It's way, 
powerful.  (I'll be getting a PC1600x next month.)
