* Soundage not too difficult (even with an iron too late!), The mono version is biensur easier to weld.
* It accepts 7 mm jacks (I've returned from 8mm: Sommercable galileo with which I rebuilt my connection with symmetrical, but I had trouble screwing in => it will not move for years)
* Less bigger than the C * Seri NP (which I posed some problems with the connectors too close together)
I would say it's medium-range to life mean by that the result is perfectly sufficient for most home studios and the apparent solidity once screwed us to believe that it is indestructible ....
