They, in contrast to the pre, sound very very good. As a dgiitech studio owner, I’m never going to be able to afford a truly great mic pre. After that, you can post your question and our members will help you out.

But others have gotten them to work. Maybe it was designed that way but then I haven’t used the EQ section, but overall it’s a nice color to have around, even though it is not a tube pre, just has a “high-voltage tube gain stage”. Since most tube coloration is really the transformers, and it has no transformers – it doesn’t sound like a tube pre.

You have to manually dial down the low end for a roll off. I was looking for a 2 channel pre and figured the EQ would be a bonus and the digital outs a big plus. The pre just lacks any kind of real character The sound of the preamp is kind of crisp on my AT compared to a transformer balanced mic pre.

Very rugged and reliable.

Small flat converters are 18 bit only. You’ll need to choose a username for the site, which only take a couple of moments here.

The input impedance is close to 10k, that is what I attribute the “enhanced” hi-end. From 3 to 5 it gets mildly fuzzy but too much for and acoustic micing for a clean sound and it is totally useless beyond 5 unless your looking for that “telphone voice” distortion. For the manual I do not know I’ve never had in my hands.
