A little cheap
GEREMY, 14.04.2016
I chose this preamp because it is presented as the best at this price, with a huge gain and a very low breath. For now, I have not been able to test the breath because I have nothing else, behind that Hi-Fi amplifier and STAX electrostatic headphones and it is obvious that the breath I hear can come from The hi-fi amplifier and dynamic microphones that I tested on this preamp. I will give a more detailed opinion, if possible on the site of THOMANN, as soon as I have my micro tape and a correct mixer following the preamp Grace Design.

I can already say that:
- The input gain switch moves on its axis (not very stable axis, possibly plastic);
- The input gain switch has NO mark on the front panel: impossible to locate: a shame at this price!
- As a rubber feet, this preamp comes with four tiny adhesive feet to stick yourself and that will hold the time they hold: a shame at this price;
- The front panel, painted black, gives a worn look as soon as there is a little dust.
- Very good thing: the outputs are symmetrical and asymmetrical, very useful when going to a HIFI channel or to a PUBLIC ADRESS amplifier as is the case in our auditorium (AUX input RCA);
- Very good packaging, absolutely virgin (without opening of THOMANN);
- No visual indication of output level;
- Very good locking and unlocking of the microphone input jack;
- Notice of use only in English and really null: no explanation, no drawing. It is forbidden to sell in France a device without a user manual in French; But both the manufacturer and THOMANN do not seem to care;
- Management of the order: it's perfect; But THOMANN does not respond (or very late to the mails) and there is no toll-free number, so I can not call THOMANN since my phone line can only call in France.
