aston-morton's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" Good pick!"

SM Pro Audio EP 84
Analog preamp transistors 8 channels (I did not take the ADAT option), 2U rack. Designed in Australia (!) And probably made in China.
Gain adjustment, Pad input gain, phantom power, low cut and phase switch on each channel.
The connection is complete (inputs / outputs XLR and TRS) and decorated with a line of insertion on each channel.
I forgot: Integrated power supply (230/120 V) AND on / off switch (it is rare on amateur equipment).
The building is neat and gives confidence, but it is very simple ....


Very simple to install and use, the manual is clear, but there is really no need.


I bought it to by-pass any very preamps recorder Korg D888 (8 simultaneous tracks) that I use for mobile terminals (rehearsals, etc ...).
The preamps are very good (for the price), transparent and especially quiet (no noise). Headroom is extended.


I just got it, I did some tests that show great promise. Of course, this is not the Focusrite or Presonus (not to mention the very high ranges), but, considering the sound system in its entirety, this machine is certainly not the weak link: comparing with preamps my table (Allen & Heath) is quite comparable, or slightly above.
Full settings on each channel, and 8 inserts is a real plus. For now, of course (it's a little early), nothing disappointing or insufficient. Yes, I would have liked a bar graph per channel, but do not abuse this rate.
The ratio Q / P is very attractive (promo). I will edit this review when I have a little more perspective.

SM Pro Audio EP 84
analog, with optional digital card (word clock and adat), I personally use it in analog, 8 XLR or TRS, 8 inserts.
front console output to XLR or TRS is gain phase inversion, low cut, phantom power, and PAD.


Configuration is very simple, but the downside is, the manual does not exist in French, nothing to say more is pathetic for a company that seems serious to neglect these Francophone clients, for a few pages!
for the rest, this is a flawless.


absolutely transparent, micro like lines.


I use it for 1 month, I chose one for the price of 2 and 3 flexibilities the possibility of used later digitally.
I use the digital output of my console, preamp lamps Bluetube Presonus.
I also have two model PR8E the lowest game.

SM Pro Audio EP 84
A / D converter effective
all parameters are independent of the 8 input channels: Alim phantom, pad, low cut phase, which gives considerable freedom

This model is in 2U rackmount


Very simple and clear, all functions are accessible directly


As beuacoup of preamp, it has a good quality from the moment we do not fit the gain back ... on the cell surface with phantom power (the most dangerous in terms of breath) is perfect


I used it for 2 years touring live show, no worries or buzz or weird stuff ... Very simple and stable value is a ...

With the experience I referrer choice, unfortunately I changed careers t must separate myself ...
