Wozzeck's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" it heats up a lot"

TL Audio 5001 4-Channel Tube Mic Preamp
12AX7WA a lamp for the input gain (which gives the drive)
12AX7WA a lamp output.

4entrées instrument (guitar, Rhodes, keyboards) on the front.
4entrées 4sorties and XLR on the rear.


Easy to use because there are few parameters ... but not necessarily easy to solve: there is such as to drive an LED, it's a little "Cheap"


I use it with KM184, an RodeNT2, the SM58, I then enters a compressor BSSaudio DPR404, and finally into a multifaceted RME sound card.
For miking acoustic guitar with pickups, ç'est not bad at all,
the sound seems easy to find, quite natural, balanced, workable.
For voice, I sometimes get really successful catches (a sound close and hot) and some days I take the plant completely (too much drive, not clear ...). Generally, I avoid the maximum preamp drive with this because I think 12AX7wa lamps are not made for that.


To summarize, what attracts me in this preamp, the ç'est 4tranches in one machine; for stereo plugs (piano) + voice or guitar.

What I like is that it can do its work constructively by providing little more presence and warmth ... but, paradoxically, it is sometimes difficult to tame, and if so, does the opposite, then I have to look far to make it discreet.

What I dislike is that it is not very reliable, I already send it back because I had "FFfrrrfffrrr" ... and he returned in exactly the same state

Lamp Technology
No effect for a classic option that prmpli qualitbr /> XLR or jack for each prampli
19-inch rack-mount 2 units


Setup can not plsu simple 2 buttons for each track rglage
The edition is very easy, simple access
The manual is clear and signed by the inspector, a sign of quality


The sound is reproduced as well, ona a quality worthy of the best studios!
The prampli colors very slightly all the microphones but not more than any other amp. In fact I would not say masi colors gives the grain of its own


I use it for a year
I like 4 pramplis Intgr!
The format is gnial, clear sound, easy to use!
I tried the Beringher 8 channels and the quality has nothing in common with this one requires no nothing!
Excellent price quality ratio do not forget that you have 4 excellent quality pram lamp in a single format!
With esxperience I referasi this choice because in my stuio is a practical tool for decision-batteie to be a lot of microphones on pramp lamp and then a quality like no other!!

See data conbstructeur.


- The general configuration is it simple?


- The manual is clear and sufficient? ...

English manual very clear!


- The sound of your instruments or microphones is properly reproduced?

The amp produces a very hot .... typed ....
This is both its strength and weakness ....
It will not be suitable for all tjrs desks ....
A battery ca sometimes lacks a bit of fishing .... but on the other hand we gain in heat ...


- How long have you use it?

2 years!

- What is so special that you like most and least?

Good quality / price ratio .....
Its too typed for some ...

- Have you tried many other models before buying it?

This is my first big amp .....
Since I bought a 9098 AMEK .... nothing to do ...

- How would you rate the quality / price?


- With experience, you do again this choice? ...
Yes ..... I think because it is the only product in this price range to offer this service ...
I would advise to change the lights .... for something less colorful ...
I'm trying to get information to make the change on mine ..

TL Audio 5001 4-Channel Tube Mic Preamp
Prampli micro instruments and 2 U rack with a lamp in between and one output, 4 input / output XLR behind, 4 input / output jack (between: facade in / outputs: behind) - 48v power supply, push / pull-30db 90Hz low cut filter + + phase switch increments. possibility of adding an A / D 24/44, one of the brand - no 96k version of prvue according to Phil for the time Dark from TL.
Given LED meters, one yellow for the use of the lamp of four + eight graded red / 12 16 / 20 dB


Very easy to use even a happiness, the report button / nitre is very well seen. One for the use of the lamp between trs but effective - and then After all, these are the ears that time while working ...
The 5001 seems pretty clear but the aprsrflexion Listen: I've heard better in round dynamic heat ...


Frankly I listen decision with C414 ULS microphones (for voice and acoustic guitars, I have not had to use them OCCAZ OH.) SM57 for electric guitars, bass + synths in the input es jack on the front and I like good lights ... ana!


I bought two a year apart in 2002, and are both crashes: buttons that spit after a while of use the 48v power supply has gone on to a of them. all with 1 year warranty: not terrible!
t one has returned home Thouar Audia and Buttons always spit but only after a few months of use ...
dcidment not even if the sound is very well, including a lack of something or srieux in the quality of the components.
I have a friend who has a ing and has the same problems! SERIES probably a bad or a default to which they have not thought at TL - I think for this type of device, they should use notched knobs. They parraissent me more effective for recall.
Note piti is not in the text: 4 / 10 measuring the discomfort causes and because I feel like TLA IS ngligeant on the quality of these knobs (sacrosanct Trade / profitable shit) ... but in fact is not good: (aprsrparations. ..) - same as I like BUT I ds as I trace the Focusrite or Avalon. I also prsise the sce techique in England would not hear of my problem at the exchange / loan of so much stuff I needed, requiring knowledge.

Added 06/06/05: I reu an email from a person with a problem of crachottements 5001 (again) - frankly they should qq ch in TLA, or will they continue turn a deaf ear?
