Dino59 is also correct. When Bozak designed and introduced the D/DL series mixers there was a little over 3 years of mass confusion. The first in the series appeared as a D model with 10-2 components and a hand cut mother board using only 8 channels from the 10-2 mono/stereo mixer. The faceplate print on the mixer in this thread is that of a D and not the early DL as the model number is showing. Early model numbers would have been D designated for sure. However there are also some very early silver face DL models that actually had mono internal cards, external microphone transformers, no loop function, and 10-2 components. The run of the chassis serial numbers does not always reflect this but production stamp dates are usually in the correct time line. People think the assignment of the letter L was for Loop but it actually reflects several other updates. None the less this mixer is what it is and getting back to the original question of being worth $1000.00 dollars, I would say it is worth whatever someone would be willing to pay. It is as they say “in the eye of the beholder”.
