I think the Mackie amps are in the "good but not great" category.  I'd call
it upscale consumer, maybe not up to the rigors of continuous day-in/day-out
use in a control room, but probably OK.

I'd put BGW, Bryston, or Crown as being higher on the scale of better amps
for post use.  It's pretty much a case of "you get what you pay for."
