A solid, reliable device that makes it easy for you

Vincent, 27.07.2011
After a very disappointing intermezzo with a device from the American brand with the unicorn, we have now opted for this simple and simple yet highly reliable and solid microphone pre-amplifier with integrated transducer. What to say? All essentials (gain, phase inversion, phantom power, and pad) on control elements is available and functions even after prolonged use still crick and disturbance-free and on any further Schnickschnack was renounced. The comboboxes redeem one of susceptible adapters and DI boxes.
So mechanically and haptically a sturdy top product.

To the sound:
The preamps do not sound like a reference device. This means that no discolouration occurs, the device transmits absolutely linear and precisely fine-grained. Have even checked times with an AudioPrecision analysis system. This also applies to all channels. For some other manufacturers, there are measurement and some audible differences in the channels.

All in all, we are therefore very satisfied with this device and would buy this at any time again. Just a really decent professional industrial converter, no funny flashing designer device, which makes it better to look beautiful, instead of working properly and reliably.

Deutch Teknology!

Franck J., 30.09.2011
It sounds fabulously good, input Word-Clock, possibility to work in 96k, multiple clocking possibilities, transparent sound, even clipping (everything soft!), It remains clean ... In short, good stuff, well finished, solid. The kind of material we're wondering if one day it might break down ...
What happiness. Bravo RME!
PS: I have 2, used with two RME FireFace 400 and a 01v96 ... Nickel configuration for capture, with a Samplitude behind for recording (for example).
