Budget class device
Our unit has been used in a recording studio environment for approx. 4 years. It has developed no issues during this time.
3 stars for quality:
The power supply may develop a very slight but detectable high pitch noise similar to an old CRT TV.
4 stars for sound:
Sound is good but does fall short of professional mastering standard.
It is not completely transparent but still more than sufficient for budget and home studios. The remote degrades the signal further. If looking for complete transparency then this will not perform.
4 stars for features:
Signal is routed through the remote and the activation switch for the remote is located on the rear side of the rack mountable unit.
The overall impression is still quite good, with room for improvements. As mentioned it?ll work fine in budget or home studios, however for professional mixing or mastering go for high-end.
