Great for ethereal voice singing style or voice Indila rap, also great for battery élèments or acoustic guitar.

The sound is superb clear, straight, and does not color the sound unless the VHD system is used.

I use it for 2 years.
I also have a 1073 LB neve I think it does have two SSL and Neve to have a choice of.
The price is very affordable for SSL preamps 4 of this type.
I would do this choice without worry.

Minimalist settings on the front, for front:

There is no adjustment dynamics or EQ.

UTILIZATION

Use more than simple impedance is adjusted according to what is returned in (microphone or instruments) you set the gain, saturation harmonics and roll my chicken ...
The On / Off contains a diode that takes three colors to the input level: green, yellow and red. we know that saturates ... when the LED changes from yellow to red, too late!

SOUND QUALITY

This is an SSL preamp very clear, no heat as one might find on a Neve type preamp, Focusrite. It provides the perfect for transitional batteries, also great for acoustic guitars with crystalline KM184.
I also used with Neuman M149 for male voices! ... it gives a very detailed and clear. You can add a little saturation harmonics on acoustic guitars to soften the sound somewhat.
I tested also with a Royer R121 ribbon microphone, with 75dB of gain, the preamp ensures no problem with this type of microphone. The whole set of MESA transplanted with saturated fat gives her a brutal slamming crillarde without distortion in the treble.
In short, wherever you need a clear and detailed.
The heat brought by the VHD circuit does not completely natural compression or "heat" of a lamp! For it is to be preferred to the universal audio.

OVERALL OPINION

I have 2 years and uses mainly acoustic drums and guitars, I used it a few times on fretless bass for games in the treble melody of the instrument ... great!
I regularly use the following preamps: Focusrite ISA, Universal Audio LA610, 6176, 710, Avalon 737, Manley, Neve

Plus: SSL sound light and airy
The least: no view, just an LED that turns red when you clip ...

One of the cheapest preamp channel price with excellent quality.
We need a clear and detailed preamp like this in his park, I would do this purchase again.

Bonn compact preamp

SSL XLogic Alpha VHD PrePublished on 11/02/11 at 01:46
(This content has been automatically translated from French)
Everything has been said above

UTILIZATION

Simple to use, Di is a real "plus" (plus they sound good)

SOUND QUALITY

This is not "under SSL" as I feared for the price. Opportunities to color the sound are subtle but real. I find the sound of SSL larger models, with a nervous but its a bit hard. On the vote, it would not be my first choice. On batteries or low in cons, I love.

OVERALL OPINION

I wanted to complete my preamps (I already had three full SSL channel) by these four preamps, taken in order to make the battery "full SSL" (or so). Achieved. It is not as good as the big XLogic, but very close, the colorings are very convincing, and Di are a real bonus....…
