I use this as one of my main studio pre-amps. The sound is just amazing. Warm and clear. The knobs are super easy to handle and very smooth. It could do with a small led light to let you know when it is on and maybe have line inputs on all 4 channels.
Other than that this is a top notch pre-amp. I highly recommenced it.

Really nice preamp! Easy to operate, solid buttons and gain potentiometers. I just miss control LED of proper function of the preamp. But it's minor :)
