1) rack mountable.
2)better and bigger screen display. It's 2018, I'm expecting a more robust, better graphic than the current dinosaur display with graphics from the 1990s era.

My ideal system would be a T8s with an ethernet output compatible with Dante, MADI, EtherSound, or A&E ME-U. For gigs large enough to need monitors, performers like individual mixes. Looks like the T4/T8 aux outs are selectable per input channel, but I need each input routed to multiple outputs and separate monitor mixes. Something like the Dante or A&E ME-1 make this easy. I currently carry the A&E QU-16 when I need these, but I find the mixer itself is big, bulky, and over-kill. I also need to retain physical buttons and volume controls, like the T1/T4/T8. iPad or iPhone mixer control surface do not work for me.

Inputs 5&6 to be treated as left and right at the two digital output stage - switchable to full mono (summed stereo) to each digital output.

I would like to stream audio backing tracks from the USB drive into the T8S mixer.
How is this accomplished?
Am I able to select tracks, start and stop them.
Is there some kind of transport controls for USB drives?
Not much clarification in manuals on how to navigate and use backing tracks.
I understand the routing of outputs, but that is all I see that is covered.

Absolutely silly to have not allowed for usb midi control of effects in these new mixers. Tap tempo addressed only from the mixer itself, come on Bose! Especially now that it looks like no easy way to mount on mic stand. Not even a dedicated tap button on the mixer?This should not be that complex to get right. There are cheap mixers with tap tempo control via 1/4 inch jacks. The usb ports are there,why not use 'em?
I've been using the T1 for years and figured the newer models would address this oversight.

Just got the T8S. Here are two thoughts from me...
1. The ability to combine channel 9/10 volume control. I have it panned hard L/R, and have to adjust both knobs if there is a volume difference between songs.
2. Global Master Output EQ. Lowest point is 125hz? That is much to high for a full range system. I think there should be a 50hz band added, or at least widen what is currently there to start at 50hz.
