Bad news, Chinese tubes!!!!!!!
For this price, why cant tube-tech spend a few extra bucks on decent tubes!!! And if you try ... read more [+]to replace with better tubes, i hope you know how to re-bias them, best of luck!!
I must comment on the negatives, cause that's what people really want to hear when purchasing a expensive piece of gear like this. The knobs spin way too easy, easier than all other high end outboard equipment. If you fart, the knobs will spin!! Nothing is stepped at all here. Also, the X-over low has overlapping filters. Its hard to explain, but its important to have steep cross-over points so that the Sub band doesn't trigger the mid band compression. Unfortunately the cross over filters are way to broad. Not good for hip-hop or hard hitting dub-step. Also, it could use a faster attack, you loose a little bit of punch with this unit but acceptable. I would recommend this unit because there isnt many multi-band compressors to choose from, IMOP there isnt a better 3-band compressor out there. I would love to see a 4 or 5 band compressor outboard for sure. Stay up!! close [-]
