Value For Money : Excellent
Analog digital converter technology and 2 outputs ADAT and BNC In WordClock.
8 Analog preamp with 10db Pad-alim Phantom by grp 4, 2 XLR combo input (jack) on front panel switchable Hi-Z analog output by 8 TRS backside, the other 6 inputs are format XLR combo meter Led and indication of sampling frequency from 44 to 96 kHz and up to 24Bit and sync when using word clock slave.

UTILIZATION

Everything is simple, nothing too complicated, coupled with Rme Fireface 800 ADAT and BNC cable to pass the OctoPre slave, I am more confident to clock Rme than the focus especially for the price, otherwise nothing wrong, it's simple and clear.

SOUND QUALITY

It works, it's cold neutral limit but it's doing well Taf, no breath particular, against the reserve gain is astounding attention to the capture source with low noise level, then I would say it is not Adat is stable in comparison, the preamp of Rme are more colorful but have a good view across the spectrum after facing a little tube preamp not compare the same expectation is not so I have a TL audio tube and the sound is different.


OVERALL OPINION

It's been 6 months that I have is a good product from a known brand but hey should not be much of that mark in there, otherwise do not expect much to transcend this box, it is well its taf, agree very well with the capture and sending musician not requesting a rich sound, so for models that after the fact but otherwise to be seen elsewhere and I think probably not at the same price, as well on 2 outputs ADAT and qualitée correct product for its price, they say good value is that;)
