1 channel
1 XLR input
1 jack 1/4 trs
Ditto for the outputs
1 VU meter

UTILIZATION

Ultra simple to use, there's t really need the manual?
First used to power a condenser microphone (my first) for
Taken lead voice.
I always use for micro mood after changing the lamp.
Possibility of fine-tuning through two large knobs + saw accurate meter
Phase inverter: sound, especially for my use
Attenuator: I do not use it but it can be very useful
Limit: do not use it, especially in the recording, it is horrible

SOUND QUALITY

For the price, that blame him? Even on a micro low sensitivity and low gain I have no breath. Transparent preamplifier as the input level is quite low.
The lamp begins to be felt beyond, we obtain a saturation ... Not very pretty.
I would recommend 1000 times a beginner or anyone on a budget.
TIP: If you are passionate and brave enough, it is possible to change the lamp. Look how is a quality lamp and you will see that it's worth it.
To me, the original lamp is not made to be biased. on the other hand, once the light changed, it is frankly very cool to play with the input level to create a beautiful saturation measured to perfection. Then adjust the output level.
Nb: let the heat lamp for 15 minutes

OVERALL OPINION

The -:
Limit unusable
No low cut filter
No switch

The +:
Unbeatable value for money
Unbreakable indestructible indestructible
Along race and precision potentiometers meter
Phase inverter
Use once the lamp changed
Connectors and balanced outputs

This costs 35 euros and is Berhinger. Those are the facts. If you know what you can do with!
