Simple design, good product, decadent price ...

Martin1985, 08.10.2012
The volume 2 was acquired, since I swear for a long time on RME devices of all kinds, but these for my ADAM P11a even at -10dB to deliver an excessively high output level to work reasonably with software level adjustment (What Anyway, is unwieldy).
So exactly the case, for the SPL this part has thought.
Up to the Volume2 was a Mackie Onyx Mixer responsible and therefore I have at least a comparison: The sound quality is at the SPL definitely better, since now no extra noise is noticeable, the Crosstalk is no longer a problem, the sound is more plastic And most importantly, and most importantly: in the lower control path (I like to work between 25% and 50% of the controller), absolutely zero difference in the sound between the settings is heard. The Mackie was a bit dull and queasy ...
The mute switch is useful and especially in the switching process whisper quiet.
The operation of the regulator I find great, not too easy, not too tough.
Say, what promises, the SPL also holds, you can not say anything. I am very satisfied with what it is and what it does!

But:
I am sorry you guys from SPL, but the price for this product goes a little too far! I feel as if I had gold-coated rims on a VW Polo and that just because the Mackie Big Knob and the Presonus Monitor Station have installed 20 features too much that no human needs and saves on the signal path electronics, rather than such a device , As this here, decent, but reasonably priced.
I have really long been over the problem "What to buy?" And BigKnob / MonitorStation * have * really bad reviews and have to save with all the features somewhere. The Presonus Central Station is still not worth its price, or you have to live there also with dyes through passive electronics and from this (price) point I take the whole thing not seriously, because all I need is that offers Volume2.
Well no talkback, but this is now available as an app for iPhone and Android ... for free!
Works great, I can only recommend!
So why so expensive? Is it like a green sweater with a crocodile, right? But in the end he is still a simple green sweater ... :)

Conclusion: Good product, no question, but yes, I come myself strange to have bought it and that can only be from the constraint for lack of alternatives and the desire with the whole RME rack to be mobile.
Because I can not stand a product badly evaluated, which is basically perfectly in order, there is full number of points, but who has read to this point now knows;)
In this sense: Make your own picture!

Great Hifi Amplifier

David691, 26.02.2013
I bought the SPL volume 2 to do tests in XLR on my high-end hifi installation, because my current preamp accepts only the RCA.
What was not my surprise listening! This small box without ornaments, well finished, cheap, proved to be an absolutely fantastic preamp, a transparency and neutrality out of the ordinary. This device can support comparison with stereo preamps sold several thousand euros.
Besides, the SPL does very well the link between a source and an amp quite close impedance, and in my home it has purely and simply made disappear a mass noise in my HP.
Needless to say, it replaced my current preamp (which had cost me 5000 euros)!
Try it, for the price there is not much risk, apart from challenging some idea of ??the HiFi!
Obviously, highly recommended!
Only 4 star for manufacturing because a small led on the volume indicator would be super nice (I had to find something :-))
