Characteristics for, thank you refer to previous opinions.

UTILIZATION

This is the best damn preamp I could have in the fingers; bearings with a 6db attenuator / boost in the same range, there is nothing more intuitive to find the optimal gain.
The music is cut down.
Function silk, although discreet seems essential to me to give a more musical in its decision.

SOUND QUALITY

Indeed, this preamp is so clean and balanced, it would almost be "utility" (voice, stereo jacks, etc ...), but with a strong tendency to make anything fancy. Engage silk, and there, without being able to touch why, but it's paradise ... Is placebo, given the low dose of harmonics that it brings? actually I...…

SOUND QUALITY

Indeed, this preamp is so clean and balanced, it would almost be "utility" (voice, stereo jacks, etc ...), but with a strong tendency to make anything fancy. Engage silk, and there, without being able to touch why, but it's paradise ... Is placebo, given the low dose of harmonics that it brings? actually I prefer to keep the magic of the small blue button velvet lining your source. I spoke with diamonds, because they provide us with the sound of a neve luxurious, and oak because of its appearance reminds me of the sound character of oak cabinetry, a sense of stature, strength and elegance. So colorful, yes it is but where you need to feel that he is not. He pulls the other up.

OVERALL OPINION

I use it for a year.
I had the opportunity to work with the old Neve, the AU, the SSL ...

What I like least is the format a little silly, and the somewhat ... of the beast, although it is a reflection of its sound: gorgeous, delicate and robust. Both female and male, a little ... well, you get.

It inspires confidence, we feel that we are dealing here with a new classic.

If it all over again, I would buy a rack of 8!

The value for money is very good.

UTILIZATION

Use no more simple, the preamp is graded in 6 of 6 db and the possibility of refining a knob to 12 db (ultra ultra simple intuitive)

SOUND QUALITY

Preamp incredibly precise, present, and all you can ask a NEVE preamp,
silk is a function that is ptite key triggers and a smooth blade attacks .. it takes away a bit of fishing but it's so much music ...
