amazing except

I still give it 5 stars because i love it just for the mic pre. but i REALLY wish it had a highpass filter. Or at least that the low band eq was an attenuator rather than a booster. and i wish the frequency selections for the low end were different, extending higher. but i really do love this preamp A LOT. and i guarantee that the eq it has will be useful for something, i just don't use it that often. my top priority would be getting a highpass filter on it.

great value!!

I now have 3 of these pre's in my chassis and it has a great sound... mine are quiet and the eq's are useful... combined with the 7x-500 and you have a killer channel strip for less then 600 buck... very hard to beat.

Man This Is Great

I really have to say this is awesome. I've been using the pres on my Focusrite Saffire Pro 14 and this is definitely a step up. Having the EQ helps a ton and even if you're cranking the highs, it never gets brittle or harsh! I'm definitely gunna be getting more of these.

Love the eq

Really enjoying this pre//eq. Love how you can add some shimmer on the top end with the eq. Simple to use, seems to be well built, excellent price. Probably will get a few more of these.

Love it

This thing is superb. The gain adds great tonal character. Giving it a 4 instead of a 4.5 or 5 since the EQ boosts are faint/subtle (but clean).
