stompboxjon's review"Could not believe it was at this price."

PreSonus DigiMax D8
The PreSonus DigiMax D8 is an 8 channel preamp with 24 bit digital output. At first when I was researching this product before buying I thought this preamp was not going to be good because of the price. The price is very affordable; I could not believe that it was an 8 channel preamp for this price. After purchasing and using it I was very shocked and could not believe how good it sounded. I have used many other PreSonus products before and some of them gave me issues and did not last as long as I thought they would (mainly interfaces).


This preamp has 8 warm and clean preamps in it with 24 bit resolution. It has LED input monitoring on the front panel and it also gives you a -20 dB pad on each of the 8 channels. You can have this preamp set up in minutes and start using it right away. I did not even have to look at the manual.
The D8 does not seem to be made out of solid material though, the knobs seem to be made out of a plastic like material but I guess that is the draw back of getting a good preamp at this price. The reason for purchasing this was simply to get more professional style preamps for my recording set up at home. This gave me 4 more preamps than my last interface did before I purchased this one and also this interface is rackable so I could us it right on the rack space on my workstation desk (it only takes up 1 rack space).
The LED meters on the front were a must have for me, that was another deciding factor to getting this interface. I have no regrets purchasing this. I just hope that over time it will hold up and not give me any issues. I do use this preamp a lot more than any other preamps now.

Converto AD / DA
8 XLR in between
8 Jack Output


I have used on two projects, I have not had the opportunity to try something else, and that is in urgent need of 8 tracks supplmentaires add my sound card Saffire PRO 26, a lower cost, I bought this machine.
I immediately did some tests, and unfortunately I t's fast enough.
Pramps between the Saffire and D8, there's no photo, Saffire surpasses.
For convertos it's the same, I ds synchronized Saffire the D8, I had a loss of signal quality.

The D8 has a rough enough signal in the low and medium. It has a ct right at the top. So I used to charley overhead or if I have no choice.
In short, in my case it dpanne by its number of tracks, but no more.
If c'tait I will repeat 50 more and go see the ct OCCAZ to find the best. I say that for the same price I could have taken a deuxime OCCAZ of Saffire, it would t better.

Besides he has his office, and at the same time, we must have to have money if we want something new ....

PreSonus DigiMax D8
Transistor preamps Class A / D conversion of 8 channels ADAT clock Toslink / XLR / Jack / BNC Rackable 1U.
No digital input not output assignment, and in any case it would serve no purpose on the input channels. if you want to use a preamp converter must be taken as the Digimax all.


We can be easier to implement! looks clear and intelligible, no need to notice! gains are accurate and have the margin, zero wind on the horizon, everything will depend on your cables and microphones ...


It is transparent enough that do not want to risk altering a clean signal.


The beast and I have been using it in November 2008, what I like most is its sound obviously but I also like the ergonomics and reliability. there is nothing that displeases me. (Precision: my only complaint is the design cheap presonus that allows them to be so competitive, so ultimately no regrets when you're not round: you can not have the cake and butter .. .)
