Fantastic unit
Hiflyer, 08.09.2017
I use the Quadmic in the studio to record Octobans (pipe drums). The pres have very low noise level and great sound quality. The bottom end lacks a little bit of "roundness", but for this price it performs very well. The size of the unit makes it very comfortable to use, and there is a rackmount kit available in case someone wanted to put it in the rack - though a little pricey...

The only thing I'm missing is a pad switch per channel, that would help to control the input signal a little better.

Typical RME Product
26.03.2016
The unit is stable and works well with RME converters (use it with a UFX). Is mounted in a gear rack with the optional wings and generates no objectionable heat. Has enough gain to handle most mic types but struggles a little with ribbons such as the AEA R84.
The sound is accurate and serves well for multiple mic usage. Find it lacking just a little in depth and body/punch when compared to high end preamps such as Millenia HV-3C or Gordon Model 5.
The gain controls are not stepped and the connection from preamp to converter/amplifier is by 1/4 inch TRS connections -- XLR would be more convenient.
Size is ideal for travel and and connectors are supplied for most outboard uses. DC requirements are modest enough to allow operation from car or battery sources.
Attractive price point for four quality pre channels.

An extremely good solid state preamplifier.. for everything. For the money involved it is simply one of the best products you can buy , if you want solid state, powerful, clean, transparent sound without tube coloration

Perfect companion
02.01.2016
I acquired this to expand my RME UCX with more straight and 48V enabled mic channels and what a perfect companion it turned out to be!

It features a solid build and ease of use. The QuadMic II integrates seamlessly with the UCX and forms a perfect pair. The sound quality is superb and transparent.

I now record amplifiers using up to 6 microphones and a DI signal to boot giving endless tone combinations to swop around to select the perfect track.

Way tomgo RME!
