- 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


- 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.


- 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.


- 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.
