(Originally written by Olivier_lg/translated from Audiofanzine FR)

Analog, "warmer" than a lot of tube preamps
Conceived by Ted Fletcher who worked on the famous Trident mixing consoles
+ "Meequalizer" + optical compressor

2 XLR + line/instrument inputs

UTILIZATION

Simple and effective with all sorts of signals

SOUND QUALITY

Very good and with a lot of character, no hi-fi sound...

but still very versatile (vocals, instruments, gun shots...)

OVERALL OPINION

1 year of use.
In my opinion, it has a very "manly" rock sound.
The front panel is rather simple and it surely doesn't do justice to the fabulous electronics inside.
I don't like the black on green labeling on the front panel, you can't read a thing.
You need a good sight...
I replaced the input XLR connector with a Neutrik one because the quality wasn't as good as the electronics.
Excellent price for money. It can easily be compared with a top-of-the-range preamp even if it can't replace them all (of course)...
I give it an 8 because I own much more expensive gear and it made me start wearing glasses!
If it ever gets stolen, I'll buy it again without hesitation.
