Péampli tube 2 Channel 1U rack. The lamp has been changed by an ELECTRO-HARMONIX GOLD.

Extensive connection: Analog and Digital.

UTILIZATION

Very easy to use even without instructions. But attetion to the symmetry of the buttons.
I use it for vocals, guitar and bass.

SOUND QUALITY

This is my first amp, for what I do and I had the budget is more than enough.
It warms the sound nicely.

OVERALL OPINION

I use it for a year and a half.
Very good value for money
I would do certainly this choice

Hybrid transistor preamp and lamps with the technology of ART V3 as well as standard 24-bit/96kHz converters. You can set the grain of the preamp with a selector.
Connectors XLR and Jack input and analog output. There is also an insert, but the converter is placed before and after the analog output -> so we can not monitor the insert if it does not pass through a PC. Digital output in ADAT, S / PDIF optical and coaxial as well as word clock input (nice!)

UTILIZATION

It has highly developed settings. Besides the gain, phantom power supply button and the button phase inversion, there is a setting of the input impedance (it plays on the color of the microphone), a button boost (+20...…

UTILIZATION

It has highly developed settings. Besides the gain, phantom power supply button and the button phase inversion, there is a setting of the input impedance (it plays on the color of the microphone), a button boost (+20 dB) to approach the floor to study the saturation and therefore have this little grain if desired.
It is compatible Adat 24/96, and it allows to copy an input signal and just replace two original channels of ADAT signal converted by the signals in the preamp.
The manual is clear and explains how to configure the converter (the rest, no need for manual).

SOUND QUALITY

The sound is purely amazing! Thanks to technology we can have a V3 largel range of sounds. I no longer use him in my home studio, both in direct box for my electric guitar for singing or making noise with my NT1-A.

OVERALL OPINION

A very versatile machine, perfect to start a home studio, keeping a maximum of sonic possibilities. I use it for several months and I do not regret at all, I plan to buy the same associated compressor (TCS I think ...)

Transistor preamp with "warmer" sound per lamp (V3 technology, which in my opinion is useless ...).
all input / output imaginable.

UTILIZATION

Very easy to use, basically there is just a gain and a volume ... What is a preamp.
I put 9 because the knobs are symmetrical for both channels, and I it bothers me, I have repeatedly confused the two volume knobs and gain ...

SOUND QUALITY

The sound is ok, but nothing more. I think the lamp is useless ... I bypass when I serve. For comparison, I have a TF pro, and it has nothing to do in terms of sound quality, because the dynamics of TF Pro is far superior. That said, for its price is very good, but do not expect the SPL or AMEK ......…

I also have an M-Audio DMP3 which although also very good for its price (its very neutral) is slightly lower than DPSII in terms of dynamics.

OVERALL OPINION

I bought it because it is the only preamp with digital I / O in this price range.
It's a Swiss Army knife of connectivity. It allows me to use two additional digital inputs of my Edirol UA-1000 S / PDIF to the frequency I want.
I would have preferred a compressor or limiter in place of a lamp that is useless, but it's pretty good in the dark ...

What technology is used?

It uses technology V3, that is to say it's a transistor amp with a system of warming lamp (no use to me)

- What are the effects or types of effects available?

there is nothing more simple as the setting for a preamp, there is a knob allowing choisire what kind of tuning the preamp needs (voice, instrument ...)
knob inversser by the aporia to his voice and a two (eg gain prop left on one and the two e it right) this is boring

- What is the connection?

enter: enter a jack / xlr for each voice (2 votes) on the same facade and deriere.

output: output jack / xlr deriere for each voice.

it is rack
