    there's no easier

    2U Rack Stereo "rectif 1U;-) and then to see" a real 2 preamps 2 lamps it's tough is mono 1/2 rack.

    USE

    Very very simple
    but comprehensive manual in English

    SOUND QUALITY

    Ha sound and that's the most important.
    in fact I was looking for a single thing simple cheap to attack audio card and console with bass guitar and occasionally voice and I fell the top.
    saw the price I pay is I am still on the c .....
    chouilla not a super transparent and warm sound and well yes that is true of good quality lamp that is more
    one branch and it sounds
    EQ very discreet and more than enough to change the tymbre for more radical adjustment we take the adequate equipment
    though .....
    compressor very efficient and super discreet no pump no breath and increasingly limiting it to hell.
    not really going to pay a single pie pawn in 300 or 400 for less ......
    btw I'm going to take a mono wandering.
    hot hot bass guitar well rounded voice etc ... everything passes and no noise.
    of course there's better but at what price?
    btw it has little brothers but he's ain cheaper and better quality the other normal just change the name eg
    TP 01 and y'en others.
    HA! for distortion there's other devices to a
    it is a preamp not a multi-effects

    in fact I was looking for a sound less rough, smoothed and I fell on the c .. also, I wanted to buy a microphone electronics Z5600 and I discovered these preamps on their site last year with of very positive articles ings American sounds (there is one that compares the Avalon!)
    I wanted to add to it a high-end peamp galley and the different opinions some Focusrite say it's expensive for what it is, others say that with neve it will be good but you not hear a huge difference .then I decid to take one's reading through back review (thank you by the way) it will serve me reference
    plus I pay 166 euros Thomann delirant right?

    The TB202 is a micro prampli having not only a part prampli lamp but a 3-band EQ and a compressor.

    In fact, there are two in one set TB101 bote spars forming two channels.

    It is version 19 "/ 1U (2U, not as I read)
    The connection is complte (Jack / XLR) and seems solid.

    UTILIZATION

    Operation is simple. One branch, it RULES possibly gain and EQ. That's it!

    The saw-nitre are quite prcis.

    I have a manual in French because I bought the product from a reseller of home loan. (Southern France). It is simple but more than adequate compared to rglages do.

    OVERALL OPINION

    For the price, I do not criticize. This is well worth of products sold much more expensive.
    Now you have to like the red because the faade is quite showy but Integrates lot in the middle of other products!

    Before I had tried to buy a Presonus preamp BlueTtube, blowing too much and a Behringer Ultra Voice, too synthetic.

    Pay 170 in Germany, the report qualitprix is ​​excellent.

    SOUND QUALITY

    For me it prampli in sound recording, can only be used for microphones which have levels of output of "horse"
    I tried it with a ribbon microphone (which requires the gain, it's true ..), the TB 202 is avoided, too much wind and noise.
    on a classical guitar with a piezo, the sound is very pleasant, open, the problem I had in this case is that without atnuation
    has returned too hard with the gain to a minimum, but with the attnuaion (-20dB), I have to gain back, so breath. -10 Db would have sufficed ...
    I compared it to a motu pramp 828mK2 and that of a mackie 14 / 2, the TB 202 is much more noisy (much!).
    I'm lying to confusion of the other reviews.

    made possible for microphones that neccessitent not much gain, or piezo pickups magntiques, but do not connect to the catch of "subtle sounds" as whispers is a waste of time unless you are fans of artifacts and noise gnreux, more or less pink.
    pramp one more attempt to find an effect on the instrument input, with the qualiseur, the overall ambiance, or compressor
    has its own style (ficasse, color.

    OVERALL OPINION

    I just finished two hours of testing (27/02/2006).
    what I like least is that I found incorences gross, by reversing the phase, or by engaging section qualisation (all twelve o'clock rglages EQ ..). If Nus want infidle least possible, you should dphaser if the activation of EQ.

    price level, it's true, it's cheap, must be suitable for sources pltot "powerful" and it is good to have a machine just "lo-fi" in its fleet, to give the effect. .. course, recess.
    one machine of this type will suffice, I think.

    SOUND QUALITY

    My goal was to use the preamp to the sound of a battery (GC + CC) before entering a soundcard (
    EMU 1820), in order to avoid saturating the converters of a sudden a little violent ...

    - The micro DC (Tbone MB78Beta static): The input gain does not need to be pushed -> no breath. compression is small but perfectly filled the role of limiting the attack to which I aspired. The LEDs are very readable. I used the eq only as low-cut filter (not to take too much GC): it is effective. Oddly, the bypass of the EQ cause of the blast.
    - The micro GC (T-Bone BD300): same remarks (aside this time, I cut the high and low leaves). The inlet is at a level so low that I tried the-20db, but then too powerful: it takes too up the gain and then there are the blows. In my opinion, a-10db would have been ideal. Compression in addition to limiting effect can have more kick, what interests me enough (game guides rather than metal bagpipe).

    Delighted with my small investment, I plug in a bass on it: an ideal replacement for DI: It appears a slight coloration "analog" (the lamp has an interest apart generate the breath ...)

    I ask myself to buy a second for OH, which have an output level much lower and, terrible deception: a breath of horse, in noise, ...

    conclusion:
    - For use preamp + comp prior to complement a sound card, microphone if you have a high output, no hesitation, the unit is unbeatable value for money.
    - To catch its subtle background for micro, flee .....

    If you open the hood, there is a single lamp, no Chinese name. Should take the time to plug a new ElectroHarmonix to see if we suppress the breath (I use them on my guitar preamp ada mp2: I can even remove the noise gate when they are new).

    rating: 10 to report his / price with microphones "energy", if not 6.

    edit after 6 months of use: I lower the rating because after many test this preamp is really useless without input level horse (perfect to replace a DI for bass, or take a GC, but any other use is impossible ).

    OVERALL OPINION

    I have the gear for 2 months. I use it every day (my battery to work, I prefer to put a headphone, start the CD player or rhythm box, and mix my game). So I waited to have a step back and put my opinion: it has not changed since the beginning.

    In large defects, especially I would say the build quality: I received a first preamp which lasts 2 hours before the power supply grid. Fortunately, I could do without the exchange points. For opening the second, I'd say the quality of welds and assembly is "irregular".

    The quality / price / sound is excellent even when the purpose for which it was intended. With experience, I redeem the same thing for the same purpose, but I'll find my way on the product much more high-end for my OH (passing directly into the microphone input of the soundcard). Simply, it is necessary to me to change the micro OH ...

    edit after 6 months: With the experience, much better than a Behringer preamp table type, but outside of special uses (GC, replacement of DI box), it can be used as troubleshooting, because the breath is then present too (I'm still trying to put a good light)

    The eq is unnecessary for home studio flat set it is already changing the sound.
    The compressor is nice.
    The power supply is not great.
    Build quality far short of what one might expect.

    UTILIZATION

    Simple.

    SOUND QUALITY

    Far superior to table behringer preamp.
    For voice it is effective.

    OVERALL OPINION

    For dynamic microphones, actually there may be the breath (even many) if the source is of low intensity.
    For static it is effective (on vocals) with the EQ to off. There is absolutely out of breath. You just have to give gain entry to a slap on the 0 or 3 on the LED, and lower the output stage to allow some leeway, and especially not to get too much into the sound card......

    (More than a year of use)
    Ps: keyboard plugged into the line inputs ... the sound is huge! Nécesairement clean but not big, fat, fleshy.
