Soundcraft UREI 1601s
Features available on the net and in particular on the site of UREI.

The connection is really complete: XLR master / booth (RCA doubled), nothing is missing!

UTILIZATION

It is not easy all falls under the fingers, and I really like because it really has a large work surface (There's even room to put his beer! I'm joking of course)

The manual is in English but very simple and complete. (Comes with a set of keys for the dismantled.

The sampler is just wonderful! You can not do more simplistic and effective for me!

I do not put 10 because an On / Off button, it is essential and it does not!

SOUNDS

Not easy for me to give my opinion, I never mixed on a amix or other, of very high quality.

From what I can say (and what my ears hear), it's clean, it has a good margin level. I prefer it to vestax, numark pioneer and others of similar price. Zero breath. Equa really powerful. but can be cut a little musicality of the coup, but it suits me perfectly.

Specificity of this table is its preview: However much the knobs move in all directions through headphones nothing changes, a bit confusing at first but now I can not do without.

This is the UREI deuxiéeme I buy (the first is a 1601 base)

I'm addicted to listening system * Pre and ergonomics of this table.

I do not put 10 because I think that sounds a lot better amix

OVERALL OPINION

It will be 4 years since I used a UREI (but only for 1 month for the S)

I do not get bored, it's always a pleasure

What I like:
The connector really complete.
The sound really cool for a table at this price.
It is hefty, it has room.

What I do not like:
No buttons On / Off and rubber knobs that wears a little fast.
the "click" buttons on the sampler at low level.

I esaayé lot of tables, vestax (in love of the PCM-37), the A & H, numarks and many other things and I think it's an interesting alternative.

Price level Quelite nothing to say it's all good, I do it again this choice easily. '

I have a team that set a (UREI 1601, Technics M5G, serato SL3, Novation Dicer, and another team quiu a set (UREI 1601S, Technics Mk5 serato SL3, Novation Dicer)

Soundcraft UREI 1601s
- Is the rack?
no, but he can put one foot for tilt (not supplied).

- How many lanes, bus attendant, departures, returns ...)?
2-way, to depart and return.

- What is the type of connectors (RCA, Jack, XLR ...)?
RCA + XLR for the return cabin and the master

- The effects section is it integrated? ...
The 1601 has no built-in effect but there is possibility to insert.

- What is the accuracy of the sample (bits / kHz)?
Resolution 24bit/96kHz

UTILIZATION

- The general configuration is it simple?
Yes very simple.
Ergonomic above, which helps in handling without doc, even for the sampler A / B

- The manual is clear and sufficient? ..
This is a mini scandal for the price of the machine. The manual is in English only.
However it is clear.

SOUNDS

- The console is transparent?
Not really, I am quite disappointed about the famous Urei sound!
There is nothing fantastic that catches my ear and that's a shame
The exit is not bad but not great ...

In addition, it is very very sensitive to the transformer blocks xx devices present.
They stated in the doc, but I do not think it was a this point!
The transformers DISCLAIM always a little hum, the Urei swallow everything!
The reason? Its power is integrated and it should not be quality, poorly filtered or very close to the circuit or not shielded, which is a big mistake.

No hum with a Stanton SA-12 or a Beringer DXJ700.
It's a shame though! Very disappointed.
So you must isolate all the blocks on another line of power supply.

OVERALL OPINION

- How long have you use it?
2 days, and not need more to realize that Soundcraft has a lot to do for the DJ!

- What is so special that you like most and least?
I like the indestructible screen, the sober side of the beast and the original form.
Well finished, ergonomic, and VU meters for once banal exchange of green / red.
We have the right blue, then white and finally red for the clip.

An important point: the cross is not as precise as a Stanton SA-12
It does not cut enough, even setting the cut thoroughly.
He keeps a 3 mm Sounds like mechanical problem.
The cross of the SA-12 attack in the first millimeter, while the Urei attack from the third millimeter, which is a waste of time.
Very disappointed because I use this table is the scratch and only that!

The quality of the pots is good in general, nothing to report.
You can also place a microphone, put a CD player.
Note that if you do this, you can not swing between Booth and Master.
The master signal passes through the booth and at the same time, so no balance between the two.
I think it's a stupid.

If you do not affect the insert, then you can use the Send to record (because there is no connection CCC) and use the Return to connect a CD player.

- With experience, you do again this choice? ...
Absolutely not.
It's a shame it had everything to be great.
