Great Improvement
Rick Rizza, 10.06.2020
As I was searching for a mixer, I left Presonus AR series due to bad review from users. When I saw the version c, this series has an improved pre-amps.

Mic inputs:
(+) Clean signal. Even though the input to DAW are pre-fader, once you normalize, there no audible noise from the mixer. (Mic NT2-A)
(-) The pre fader signal from my condenser is so weak even at maximum gain. I hate turning knob to max.

Guitar input:
(+) I plug in a bass guitar and the sound is crystal clear compare to the dedicated guitar amp. I love this feature.

Line-in:
(+) Sound quality is good for the stereo line in
(-) I connect my FP-30 digital piano and my PSR-S775, both from stereo line-out to different stereo channel. You need to turn the instrument volume to max plus press down the +10dB on the mixer, still the volume is too low. In the DAW, the signal are barely visible.

Super channel:
(+) useful and good, but for non serious work.
(+) can be use as an extra channel, but don't expect much
(-) BT5 connection works well but the noise floor is noticeable.

Other:
(+) Great build.
(-) No option to send the signal after fader to DAW

Recommendation: Go for it! I'm satisfied without a regret.

Gutes Gerät zu einen angemessenen Preis
Eunymus, 03.05.2020
Ich habe dieses Mischpult als Alternative für mein Audio-Interface gewählt um unterschiedliche Einstellungen für verschiedene Eingangsquellen nicht immer wieder verändern zu müssen. Ich nutze das Gerät nicht für Live-Auftritte sondern ausschließlich zuhause zum Spielen und Aufnehmen verschiedener Instrumente. Da es sowohl Mischpult als auch Audio-lnterface, Effektgerät und Aufnahme miteinander kombiniert, ist man damit gut aufgestellt. Die Bedienung ist halbwegs schlüssig und man kann sich auf der Herstellerseite eine deutsche Bedienungsanleitung herunterladen. Als Einsteiger im HomeRecording bin ich mit dem Funktionsumfang und Klang ziemlich zufrieden. Die Verarbeitung ist wie erwartet gut, die Regler und Fader machen einen wertigen Eindruck. Ich würde das Gerät wieder kaufen und kann es auf jeden Fall weiterempfehlen.

Premiers essais concluants
serge-music, 28.06.2020
J'ai (osé) remplacer ma ToneMatch Bose (limitée en entrées) par cette table connectée sur des Bose Système L1® modèle II avec module de basses B2. Le résultat est époustouflant par la qualité et la précision des réglages.
Je regrette de ne pas avoir "osé" plus tôt !
Musicien (Accordéonniste Claviériste) chanteur live, je vous recommande vivement cette table

Mesa muy polivalente
Alfredlacabra, 16.11.2020
Es una mesa de audio de buena calidad, con buen sonido y genial la grabación en tarjeta SD. Quizás la terminación en plástico de más calidad de la botonera sería perfecta.
