UTILIZATION

- The general configuration is it simple?
It could not be simpler ...

- The usual functions are they easily accessible?
All functions are intuitive and obvious: one knob for gain, one for the bass eq, one for acute, a notch for the high pass filter, one for panning portard ...

- The manual is clear and sufficient? ...
It is rare to have the manual with the machine because it is no longer manufactured. However, a manual is available in pdf on the website of Yamaha here ( http://www2.yamaha.co.jp/manual/pdf/pa/english/mixers/PM170E.pdf ) .
The manual is purely technical and English. It includes 10 pages in black and white and covers the PM-180 PM-170 and his twin brother. Here is the summary:

SOUNDS

- The console is transparent?
No, the preamps are not "transparent". It is a very nice grain that really looks like a lot to that provided by the preamp 550 series PLCs. That's what makes the charm of the preamp Yamaha PM-180 in my opinion!

- Introduced she breath?
If you put everything so thoroughly, and even saturation ... But if not, in common use I have not detected.

- The equalizer is effective? ...
I have not used this feature too for now. But the little I've used it seemed efficient and more musical.

OVERALL OPINION

- How long have you use it?
I acquired almost two months ago after using it in a studio.

- What is so special that you like most and least?
Plus: Grain preamp!
The least: the gain is not the same on different channels (vintage vintage ...)

- Have you tried many other models before buying it?
I worked with different types of preamps yes. However, this is not so much the look I was looking preamp but the grain API ... I have not really tried before buying.

- How would you rate the quality / price?
When you know that $ 550 API is around € 2,200, see emerge a PM-180 is a OCCAZ not to be missed when the grant is skinny!

- With experience, you do again this choice? ...
Eyes closed!

Warning:
I add that this kind of stuff is quite rare to find and most of the time it is in the U.S. (on ebay) that comes up.
