Fantastic product at a great price

Mark6035, 22.08.2015
It's quite a basic product but has great utility if, like me, you have to keep reaching for the output level of your interface to make master level changes. I, like many home producers, are limited by space so the possibility of including a dedicated mixer isn't always the most efficient use of space, especially as many/most of us do our mixing in the DAW anyway.

This takes up very little space in my work space and the XLR connections ensure that everything is securely fastened (and balanced, of course!) and there is a good weight to the unit to keep it from sliding around the desk. The attenuator has a silky smooth action and level adjustments are very linear with no surprises in the way of jumps up/down in level. The mute button has it's obvious use but the mono function is very helpful when wanting to quickly check your mix works in mono and it's difficult to believe that some other units of this type don't include this function.

The unit looks fantastic with a 'vintage' styling and the build quality matches the appearance too. There is no noticeable colouration to the sound as it is a passive unit and the biggest compliment I can pay is that I forget it is there even though I use it constantly.

In short, if you are considering this unit or any other at this price point then you will definitely not be disappointed with this

useful and robust

DUBFRED, 01.06.2017
Design is good. Pretty solid box and nice smooth dial.
Buttons feel a little flimsy.
Stereo imaging is not that great until you turn the dial to 12 o'clock or further.
The mono button creates some phasing issues and does not actually render the signal truly mono. I tested this a number of times - the circuitry is problematic.
The mute button is ok - it causes a slight crackle before muting the signal, so not entirely smooth.
Inputs and outputs are clearly marked, although their orientation is slightly annoying - you end up having to cross your speaker output cables over one another due to the position of the left and right outputs - something I'm always keen to avoid.
Good value for money if you need a cheap and quick controller that's passive and easy to use.
