Great

Dominic K., 20.10.2014
A great part. Use the preamp for voice recording (together with a Brauner phanthera). I had previously a very good preamp - a Chandler Germanium, which unfortunately has adopted - and did not expect a large jump in quality.
In fact, the Syren takes the voice recording even more "forward" than the Chandler. Direct and more "in the face" (sorry) I think no more.
In a direct comparison, the Syren works somewhat less brilliantly in the highs ... but the directness of the signal is simply madness.
For the features I have only 4 stars, because the HPF for my taste a bit high (90Hz).
The color switching makes almost no difference in language - one has to listen very carefully. This may look quite different in other signals which may be more saturation.

Flexible door handle

Georg aus R., 31.12.2016
This small slot offers exactly what I hoped for: pre-amplification with flexible adjustable tube distortion. Flexibility means here that you can influence not only the strength, but also the sound of the distortions. The switchable feedback has often a very great influence: In the setting "Open", the limit is softer, the distortion spectrum seems to be limited to rather low harmonic - actually the ideal preamp for a Fretlessbass ...
The device is in practice very low noise. So low noise, which one could guess (I did not look) that one or the other semiconductors still sits before the tube, but no matter - the result counts, and that is in my opinion great!
What I like less, is the caption - "dB" in uppercase letters, well ... And: I would have at least a switchable output (!) - Pad desired, the preamp at the exit synonymous times right in the corner , Without exceeding the subsequent transducer. But a damping member can be tinkered yes ...
