  • The worst enemy of the ground loop

    Radial Engineering X-AmpPublished on 10/09/14 at 13:47

    Bottom active REAMP supplied 15V, made in Canada!

    - Entry into XLR so expect a symmetrical cable jack male / male XLR if you go out of your sound card to the line out
    - 2 outputs, the first is mandatory, the second is optional and is isolated, if you want to connect a second amp, with the possibility of reversing the phase.
    I personally have not bought for this feature, I'd definitely if I need one day to use 2 amps

    No, the main interest that I found, it's the sound that comes out, and a small switch "ground lift"
    I turned my sound to eliminate those pesky ground loops, with moderate success, but not enough satisfactory.
    Unpacking the boiboite, 5 minutes and a switch later:......

    We read a lot of good and evil on AF, including one often reads not found the same sound that directly plugging his guitar on the amp ... yes!
    Indeed, to have fun, save your dry and your amp at the same time (with a splitter or a cable in there) and then dry your reampez: compare two signals REAMP / amp, it'll look very closely, but it ' is not the same.

    BUT: who cares! The sound comes out of your amp please? That's all that matters! Being a purist is good, having said that I prefer a more accurate signal "denatured" but clean, but rather a signal contaminated with buzz.
    I really do not like the term denatured, but you really have to understand that your fiddling knobs, you will hear almost no difference, and without doubt not by démerdant well.

    I invite you in all cases to read the very good article by Phil29 https://www.mediafire.com/view/?t8u28az754s2i44
    which is why the re-amping without REAMP box is better. In absolute terms this is true, but the reality on the ground that in some cases there are not many alternatives.

    I too would have liked to make me re-amping by plugging my sound card to my amp, but the reality is that if your amp or your sound card does not have a ground lift, you'll definitely use the OS and it will buzzer wickedly in your amp.

    UTILIZATION

    There's no clarity, there's not even a switch to turn it on, you plug everything, and voila it works.

    SOUND QUALITY

    Again, you only have to tweak its sound card, level of entry of the DI and the level knob on the pedal for a very very frankly his (very ... I insist) convincing.
    It can not match a direct connection to an amp, but if you not have oscillometer integrated brain, you should not be disappointed

    OVERALL OPINION

    Thomann, it really is less expensive, dipstick has had 130, while many other sites offer the 180
    It's still pretty expensive, but for me that's the price for silence quality (no buzz) + sound quality!
    My favorite is active model story my signal still optimistic, but I have not tried before liability (or even passive DI in reverse).
    I just knew that with this model, I would have more concern for the masses and its nickel: it's Radial, do not forget still
    With experience, I would do this choice, after you leave me if a cheaper passive model that promises me to eliminate ground loops and keeps me as ballsy signal, I sign immediately and in addition will free me ca a hold on my extensions.
