UTILIZATION

Nothing more simple, it's a preamp ...

SOUND QUALITY

HUGE!
I use only the voices, and particulierment live, but I'm sure he would be perfect for the studio and other sources.
the "key" SPL is perfect for me.

OVERALL OPINION

Less than a year as I have, but I never part with it even if he comes to die I bought a direct!
most is the color, and all the extras SPL
the least is that I scorched the lamp after one week, because (apparently related) of a voltage generated by the 48V (not all inclusive explained that the electronics has given new life the beast ...)
I work with RME, Presonnus, Avalon, TLA, but more for the studio, Live is perfect on a voice accompanied by a small KMS105 families.
Obviously, this is my humble opinion, we will say that the grain of the singer is also something, at least fully satisfied.
