The slap !

FTU, 07.09.2011
I hesitated a little considering the price of the machine. I took it in full version, that is to say with the remote. As much to say from the beginning, we understand after a few times of use why we pay such a price. It is very very high end!

Excellent packing, we recover the machine in the state where it had to leave its place of assembly. It is already very reassuring.

I received it with the notice in German, but fortunately, there is a CD supplied with the same notice in English.

Installation and connections were easy.

The first concerns started with the sound tests. I admit to being very disappointed at first. I had a constant buzz on my monitors (Focal Solo 6Be). After reading the instructions, it is advisable to connect the supplied pads to the back of the speakers. Result, nothing more ... its crystalline, pure!
I then had concerns about the headphones outputs. Big buzz too. Problem often mentioned on forums ... I had no intention of returning the material or tinkering myself so I made a reason. Bizzarement, 1 month later, nothing. I still do not know what it really was but I had a console that would cause the buzz in my circuit. You have to be very careful about your work environment, it would be a shame not to take advantage of the perfection of this material.

To summarize, after a few months of use, I have never had the opportunity to hear details at this point either in my own mix or CDs that I know by heart.
I even gained the level of rendering of my Focal. I now hear the bottom of the spectrum, and of the blow more question for me to take a subwoofer as I had envisaged at the beginning. The remote is very convenient but I will detail more precisely on the page of this product.

I know this is after all only hardware but I do not know what I will do without the Avocet now ...

Outstanding controller and converter

Oliver351, 09.04.2013
Both the DA converter and the analog part of the Advocet have an excellent sound (low noise, transparent, dynamic, open, "musical" ...). Va at low sound levels, the Advocet sounds better (more dynamic) than for example my passive controller from Coleman. Also the headphone output sounds very good.

The processing makes a very good and solid impression. The features of the very user-friendly Remote II unit and the connections (predominantly XLR) are ideal for practice in my opinion :-) This also applies to the exact volume control via a rastered potentiometer and relay.
