A new star at the Akustikamp sky - and how the lights are lit .....

Klaus-Dieter H., 06.02.2014
The Acus One-8 I have added to occasionally amplify small gigs with guitar and singing. In addition, the amp should be used as a DI box and monitor for larger performances.

In addition to the ample equipment of the amplifier, its small dimensions and the very successful loudspeaker equipment made me want to buy.

The amp is four-channel built, which is already exceptional in this price class. The needs of a working musician were taken into account. There are two microphone inputs, which offer both XLR and clinker inputs. A clinker input is provided for the third channel; It is thus predestined for the connection of a guitar. This will preferably be an acoustic guitar. It also works, however, to connect an electric guitar with a preamp (eg Boss ME-70).

Fortunately, these three channels were also equipped with gain regulators, which greatly facilitate the coordination between guitar and mics. The other equalizer parameters also work effectively and, if desired, actively intervene in the sound. Channel four with stereo chinch connector provides the possibility to operate an external sound source, eg mp3 player or midi player. The effect section is well thought-out and the selected effect can be individually controlled for each channel in its intensity. The headphone output, the DI-Out and the absolutely effective Notch filter are also worth mentioning.

To the sound: WAHNSINN!
To the test I have the full program. After the amp was securely placed on a tripod thanks to its speaker flange, two mics, an acoustic guitar and a Roland SonicCell were connected as a midifile player. The soundcheck, ie the control of the channels among each other has not taken two minutes. What then came out of this little box, has knocked me down. The guitar sound remains quite natural and reflects the sound characteristics of the guitar unchanged. The singing also comes unadulterated and noble. And then the Midis from the fourth channel really crisp and fresh with good bassfundament and totally linear. That's how it should be. With a much higher-priced AER Domino, this middle sound has always bothered me. With the Acus it is completely different and much better solved. Even at moderate volume you can feel the "wind" from the speaker.

Conclusion: I have the Acus One 8 absolutely convinced. For me, he is now the reference class among the acoustics. But the competition can sometimes come up quickly, to beat this little box. What is now so bustling on the market, especially in this price segment, is certainly not. But even among the much more expensive amps it becomes very thin. The sound characteristics, the equipment and everything in these small dimensions leave me in any case no wishes open.

In the course of time, I will surely still have the right Extensionbox; Then I can spread the sound a bit more in the width and can play many shows with two small boxes without ever having to go up my big Dynacord PA.

Supplement: After a 3/4 year intensive use, I am still enthusiastic about the amp. Interesting is the comparison to a JAM 150, which a colleague of mine own. The JAM (now Schertler) is not bad either. But what is a very important advantage of the Acus is the gain control, which makes a coordination between guitar and mics much easier. Depending on the pickup system, the guitar is just too quiet at the JAM. This may be synonymous with relatively quiet applications still be equal, but leads to problems with appearances, which also sometimes require a higher output level. So, as before, thumbs up for the Acus.

Sounds really good

Andreas193, 06.01.2017
The Acus one-8 in black is a good acoustic amplifier. I was looking for an amplifier for acoustic guitar, singing and possibly support with drum and bass playback. All of this can be the Acus and brings it outstanding to hearing. But I do not like a few things.

In my opinion, positive:
- The sound of all the devices I connected
Is full, clear, never pointed and annoying
- Performance always seems to be in abundance
- Phantom power for my Sennheiser
Condensate micro is available and if necessary
- The black lacquer makes a good impression and
Seems to be robust enough for reasonable transportation
- The carrying handle allows one-handed carrying
- The possibility of input sensitivities
Agree, I find genius

In my view, not so good:
- The controls wiggle so extreme that I have that for one
Long amplifier life
- Of the 8 effects, 2 may be needed, the
Remaining must always be connected with
- All the effects sound like a different one for me
Long ending reverb?
- Missing path for other effect devices

With the purchase of the amplifier one does not make a mistake, but it is not perfect either. For the price, I am particularly interested in the wobbly Potis.
