Very good and discreet

Channel strip 1U rack.
Ability to pass a second analog channel to the output S / PDIF, which transforms the beast A / D converter stereo.
For the rest, cf. previous opinions.

UTILIZATION

Manuel Spartan but adequate (that I remember). Overall, for professionals, the beast is still very easy to use, even if you always take a little time to enjoy the color of the compressor and possibly the "iron" function.

Finally, a little more to the strength of the beast, that not Racké has stood without flinching dozens of travel by car, train, rer, and so on ...

SOUND QUALITY

Working only in sound classical / jazz, I was a few years ago looking for discrete preamps, versatile enough because of the cost, and easily transportable. Since then I have gradually shifted to the Millennia, the Universal Audio and Rupert Neve (cleanliness of its forces), but I always kept my six q for some colors on light voice, baroque instruments.
While at the preamp, there are many more things "couillues", with more flexibility, the EQ is a bit light, and with only 3 channels quickly limited and finally compression lose too accuracy, or downright too when she is not well tamed. But it is nevertheless a really interesting sound, both warm, delicate and discreet, in a very musical word of classical or jazz, accompanied by A / D converters of good quality (it is well worth the RME obviously not Mytek or Prism, but for most projects, it is enough).

After that, I totally understand that people looking for a real change of sound (the lamp Type Avalon) do not find their account or other hoping for a miracle sound are frustrated by the six q but good, is that these people are well aware that this is just a preamp with optical compressor 400 euros new? I'm not so sure ...

OVERALL OPINION

Used extensively in the first two years, much less now (especially since I went to the UAD plugs, and I prefer, for simplicity, all my work in digital color), it is in my opinion a great start for mono preamp with everything you could possibly need for an audio plug unbeatable bargain price (200 euros for all that, it's still awesome).
I do not sell through this rather peculiar color, which I more than once saved on the metal too lyrical voice and harpsichord / lutes too hard. Now, we must also accept its limitations, and how to use it not as a box to do everything, but as one factor among others in a chain of hardware.

As b2croix wrote lowest level there any connectors, input, output, insert, analog, digital, it's nickel.
The rack looks great, many LEDs are here to tell us (a glance) what are the functions that are in use.
The knobs look very solid and very enjoyable to use. The connection to the air also very strong, it's serious!
Preamp + EQ + Compressor perspective, it is ideal to make a good recording.

UTILIZATION

At hand, the SixQ is very convincing!
Settings, although numerous, are very quick and easy (nothing to do with virtual effects rack or digital)
The headroom is very good, no breath, very good dynamics!
A sense of trust faitr feel, it's good stuff!

SOUND QUALITY

Ah the sound at last!
I love it all.
It sounds, it sounds, it sounds !!!!!!!! It sounds ten times better than the full tube preamp that I know lol.
Markets finished products gadgets, JOEMEEK lives up to its reputation again.
It's great for everything (I have not tried to synth).
For voice, gratis, bass, percussion is perfect!
The color of the sound is very flexible.
Moving from one to the sixties seventies, eighties. It's really disconcerting to efficiency!
I plugged a B2, studio projects, an NT2, an sm57, a T-bone SCT700 and Neumann TLM 103, all sounds great, it's flattering, the sound is very deep, bold without being in the lower drooling, very musical mediums, they easily give a lot of presence to the source (not nasal at all), acute beautiful, smooth and precise at a time.
The compressor is monstrous, I can not do without it, it's simply magical! He fucks the potato, it can also be discreet if you will, cv'est to the card. He brings an especially nice grain.
The EQ and very very musical.
In short, after taking a well-tuned, I will not touch her then quasiement more (a small delay, reverb to "worse", but it sounds so much the desire to keep his "dry" is very large). In any case I am using more plug ins treatment (day and night)
So, they mix all my projects with ease. It's very impressive!

OVERALL OPINION

I bought it for € 310 OCCAZ (in its original box, like new, I think he will spend the year without a glitch, it's solid) and it's really a report his / full price halluciant !!
I already know a lot of preamps and the first time I have such a good buy in terms of sound. My friends tried it, they all want one, then go to run fast, a new legend is born!!

The knobs are plastic but they look strong, and the race is trs agrble and rglages prcis. All selectors are equipped with LEDs of different colors (green, yellow, blue), handy. Ergonomics Good visual trs!

Connectivity super complte: there is everything!
Between an XLR bal., A jack between assym instr., A line between sym., A symbol entry. ("Channel 2 analog input" in the "digital interface", I not really know what ca is, the wise hello!), an insert (convenient to use the compressor and the eq on a table), 1 output anal. XLR bal., 1 output jack assym. / sym., 1 output anal. jack (-10 / +4 dB), 1 SPDIF, 1 Optical Output OUF ... that's it!

In terms of selectors, iya lot of stuff: 48V, "IRON" an additional gain of 4 dB, a 20 dB pad, a phase inverter, a "pre Meter" (handy for calibrating the gain of ), a "high pass filter" for the vocal mic (pop, wheezing) and so on.
In digital, the beast the gre 44, 48, 88, 96 kHz (enough!)

ITS now (finally).
Well, what about ... just a ring!
I have a BLUETUBE, uh how to say is crap! Not without being mean is not that great ct.
Without EQ and compressor without the better dj sixQ rings (more air, more accurate, musical). Then we do what we want. Were stained, a little madness, not at all.
First, the EQ, it blows a little above 5 kHz but I balance it is so musical, and the breath I had. I rediscovered the sounds on my new GREAT (acoust. and electr.) More friendly, and presents with soft mediums (nothing to do with those pesky plug in nazillards dgeus), the pretty sharp metal and never aggressive (nothing to do with those pesky plug in numriques dgeus, zero ...), deep bass and sweet (nothing to do with those pesky plug in drooling, dgeus, zero ..., name name!). In short, the EQ I feel that I do not spend more (grate the headphone first and APRS on monitors).
The optical compressor. Ae the slap, I love, yet please!! It's warm, ultra ractif, granular, discrete (or to be intrusive) is sixties, seventies, it is all thanks to rglages complete (this is the first time that by adjusting the attack and the release really hear the difference (again in comparison with those of *%@&#-<$ plug in my "Tuuuuut"). Same here are stained or not, as we want (guitar, vocals bass perc, everything sounds is gnial!). rglages Beware when even he must be super thin and take your time (h is compressed so taken here). Especially the release (no empty manage depending on the source) and the threshold (not too abused at the door if it's really too aggressive)
Well here I can talk on and on but I think it's a good glimpse.

The only worry:
- I want to buy one for deuxime see that it has no battery.
- So I see even larger https://fr.audiofanzine.com/produits/avis/index, ProductID, 29795.html, h yes, it must give serious but it is 10 times more expensive (for two years may be)

Well here is the conclusion to mono recordings of voices, acoustic guitars, electric bass, percussion, violin or sax (not tried), I think it's the best (by far) over his / price. Sr Although there are better but all need in this price range, I dfie anyone to offer me the alternative ... (there are not drops!). I await your ractions, and has more good zikouse!

T says it all, except a small particularity that matters to me is a pramp mono, but there is an analog to pass a signal on the S / PDIF. This means that it can (if you have a strip or a small pramp available, even a large) to add two entries a sound card (presonus firebox in one for me) .

For the rest see the reviews previous ones.

- Perfect on an AKG D112 bass drum in the
- Well with the static view with excellent micro surgical

SOUND QUALITY

Trs prampli good, you get everything you want with this band comp and eq. I totally agree with the adjacent t said. I even associated with my SansAmp bass driver to attack the floor of my Fender BXR amplification 300C (for bass). It is standard (AMPEG, even not afraid!)
This is an excellent prampli of home studio, but also a tool for a musician, a good guitar for bass gnial, trs good for my Rhodes.

OVERALL OPINION

I recently, unwanted, but I had great advice ings who are working with the Twin Q, I was looking over an opto-compressor to diversify my treatments (comp lamps TL Audio C1, comp plug Logic).
I love everything on it, he ridicules pramplis fashion, those with a lamp that shines to paste the trend of marketing stuff (blue tube, ART DPS, Berhinger, Korg TP-2, TL fatfunker audio, etc. ...)

To get better you need to type in the classic series from TL Audio valve, or Avalon (but less flattering to the HS) Manley.
I find the report quality excellent price!

It revived my BPM CR 73 II is a high quality microphone, but that the default of being a bit analytical and sometimes, on cold pramps too neutral.

Following several months of notice APRS use

Well, I'll try a little balance in several months APRS situation DIFFERENT types of projects. I'll qualify my first opinion:

- The compressor is still interesting for me, I love his radical ct hot when pushed
- The EQ is what I use the least, it is useful for the instrument between Rhodes and bass, but I prfre microphone jack does not touch (I prf re the subtle from that of 5051 of TLAudio)
- THE PREAMP! that's what I do not like looking back on this machine, it is transparent, but it's a real weakling! I have 4 times the gain on the classic valve C1 TLAudio! The pramplis the firebox are also suprieurs.
- Finally I use in the C1 complment when I need more than two inputs or to treat or rhodes guitars before attacking an amp
- The A / N is it perfect, with the compressor and justifies the purchase of this beautiful machine.
