My deduction of a half point is the fact that the gain knob is stepped in increments of 4dB. I know that you can fine adjust with the output level but the problem is that when switching the gain, there is an audible bump in the audio which can distract the talent if this is used for voiceover work.
Other than that, an awesome piece of gear. close [-]
