I find it strange you say that. I had a lynx aurora and ensemble side by side, and there really wasn't much difference in build quality. Both units have similar front panels, but the ensemble certainly had a cheaper finish on the case... There isn't much difference in build quality between the ensemble/lynx and the digidesign 192's I have either.

They both pale in comparison to "old school" gear. My Manley Labs compressor has a 6mm front panel for example!!
