What technology is used? (Analog, digital, tube ...): dual preamp tube
What are the effects, or types of effects available? There is no effect to by an inlet adapted to low impedance microphones like Neumann certain.
What is the connection? XLR
Is it a rack or rack-mount model? Yes


The general configuration is simple? Yes
Editing sounds and effects is easy? Yes
The manual is clear and sufficient? ... What manual? There's no need. One branch is amplified and it sounds.

It is possible to turn off the needle for the meter. As one can go beyond the red. Even beyond the preamp does not saturate. There really is margin, we can kick it without the sound deteriorates.


The sound of your instruments or your microphone is correctly reproduced? The sound is fabulous. The upper midrange is silky without making too much coloring.
The preamp makes it clear or does it stain? The preamp is more transparent than a Neve 1073 and certainly less than GML. I use it for everything even if it is really built for voice. The bass guitar is also exeptional output of this preamp. I spend so sound in an ADL 1000 (replica LA2-A), the result is equal to what we hope.


How long you use it? 2 months
What is so special that you love the most, least?
Most: the sound, the simplicity, versatility
Cons: no built-DI
Did you tried many other models before buying it?
Yes, Neve 1073, DAV Audio, Manley etc. ...

How would you rate the quality / price? it is very expensive but very good
With experience, you do again this choice? ... Yes
