dbx 386
The Dbx 386 is a tube based analog and digital pre amplifier. It has two channels, each with its own XLR and 1/4 connections as well as separate metering and parameters for each. Each channel has a knob for drive, analog output level, and digital output level, as well as buttons for a pad, phantom power, phase, and low cut. This is a rackable unit and will take up a single rack space unit.

UTILIZATION

The configuration of the Dbx 386 is pretty easy to follow and it won't take long to figure out what everything does on this unit. It is easy to set your level and the vast amount of parameters allow for this to be a versatile unit that can be used for a variety of applications. I don't have the manual for the Dbx 386, but it is easy enough to use you shouldn't need it if you don't have one.

SOUND QUALITY

The sound quality of the Dbx 386 pre amp is warm and rich and great for a number of different instruments and applications. I have used this pre amp to record vocals, electric guitar, acoustic guitar, drums, and bass guitar and I always find that I get good sounds when using this pre amp. The sound is warm because of the real tubes which gives it a unique sound that is tough to replicate without real tubes.

OVERALL OPINION

I've been using the Dbx 386 for about a year and I have found it to be a great sounding tube pre amp. It isn't too expensive and is a great deal for the home studio owner. Dbx makes some great pre amps and the 386 is a nice example of what they can do. Overall, the Dbx 386 is a great option for a cheap tube pre amp.

Stereo preamp has lamps.
the one I've had bosses S / PDIF I do not know if it is "serie" ...

USE

Well it's a preamp, nothing wicked good ...

SOUND QUALITY

I put this post especially for the previous answer!
I recorded an album with this preamp for a month, and frankly about 1032, with headphones or mix a breath then we never noticed Gnant ... the album is t MASTERIS out and nobody noticed ca.
it is true that utilsait exclusively digital output to attack protools, but I doubt that the breath you had either normal, in my opinion he was the flingu 386!

non frankly it sounds this little rack, hey I not found extraordinary that, it is certain that there is much better.

NOTICE GLOBAL

I do not own this machine but I have had the opportunity to exploit it and I find it pretty good.
The preferred is the digital output (again I do not know if all the models have), converters seem rather good, the result is good, a little color lamps without overdoing it either it's going it's cool ...
having bosses on the biggest gear I know not worth ca references but ultimately there is no secret, the more expensive it's good (with a few exceptions).
This preamp is worth its price ... OCCAZ I think it's a good deal (with SPDIF output and in good condition !!) if I find an expensive not I take it !!

I acquired it because it had good spdif converters and analogue inputs are pretty faithful to the sources I send him is saying (keyboards, guitars, vocals) basically. These are lights but the coloring seems to me not at all obvious, but that's not what I asked. Just record what i play, the sound, I do it on my console before moving it.
