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.

(+) 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.

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

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