3 channels down after 4 years!

Total rating

Simple but effective preamp. Sound is relatively good for the price you pay and noise level is acceptable, in this price range. Controls are simple and easy (just gain and phantom on/off) so for home recording this was a great product for me. Only issue I have is that, after 4 years, 3 channels are no longer working!

I bought this preamp december 2009 so it's now 4 years old. Just after the 3 year warranty period, channel 1 gave the ghost. Today I noticed channel 5 producing strange electrostatic noise. Same issue I had in the past with channel 1 (now dead) but back then I thought it was a cabling problem. Channel 8 has very low output and when gain is turned up, the output remains the same but signal gets distorted. Probably a design flaw, some cheap capacitors.

I know, you can't expect miracles for the 133 Euro I paid back in '99. Soundwise, this product is OK but it seems that there is a quality issue. If you're not planning on using it for longer than 2 - 3 years, this is a good solution. If you want something that lasts a little longer, spend some more money because basically, I can throw it away now...

Good product

Use this with an alesis multimix the pres sound better than the alesis ...only complaint is there are no dial numbers so setting levels can be a pain.

Well built unit nice & solid still using my one never had a problem reliable bit of kit.
