Have already two ULN-8 and a ULN-2 of Metric Halo and have used other channels, only without the also excellent Mic-Pres.

The quality of the preamps (ULN-8) counts in any case what you can buy for money, including some far more expensive brands, such as Manley, Millenia, Avalon, etc. Probably due to the extremely short distances and the integrated construction LIO-8 and ULN-8, the preamps and transducers are a compact and compact unit that surpasses most of the other solutions in clarity and directness in sound. Pseudo-tube juice is no longer necessary. The signal jumps to the listener, but also mistakes in the microphone or musical quality are not forgiven!

The software is useful, logical and thought-through, without any optical stimuli. Tool flat.

Currently, the MH users are waiting for the upcoming MH-Link, which will switch the interfaces to USB, which should facilitate handling when several devices are running and will also run under Windows.

Unreserved praise!
