UTILIZATION

Plug and play!
This implies we must P16i, ADAT converter - RJ45. PoE, adjustable gain for each channel (-10, 0, +4, +22 dB), 6x RJ45 outputs for up to 6x PM M-16 Personal Mixer.
After the linker can p16m via RJ45-thru, but it needs 6v power supply (supplied) by p16-m further.

SOUNDS

Up to 48kHz ADAT, we go beyond analog.
Integrated (eq limit) effects do their job, it's not Pulteq we do agree ...
The dynamics are respected, the sound is not distorted.
A slight hiss is noticeable, but it is light and fast cover.

OVERALL OPINION

I use it for more than 6 months in professional studio, then it's mostly musicians who use it, I have one in authority to control what they receive. They are very satisfied. For me it's simple: I send to 0db or bus, they mix them!
It is intuitive and relatively simple.
In utlisation:
Limited to 48kHz digital, if the sampling is higher, you can enter in analog, it is seen.
Overall view, there is no indication that a track is muted. A small LED would be welcome.
Per track, mute is indicated by the absence of red LED around the volume knob (there it is)
0 latency is nickel
For the rest it is a very good value for money.
The surface is robust, the knob, it will be seen in 5 years ... but for now, RAS
I am very satisfied.
