    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).

    Good sounding pres/faulty components

    I bought a pair of these right as they were released. This issue may very well have been resolved by now, or maybe I have just had bad luck with them.

    Great tones. On the fast and clean side, but able to dial in some transformer tone and personality at higher input gain settings. Driving the preamps pushes them into lovely mid-forward, aggressive territory. Conservative usage yields clean, flat results with fast dynamic response. EQ feature is handy and musical. The 10K and 60Hz shelves are great for detail and booty, respectively. Absolutely no issue whatsoever with the inherit sound of this preamp.

    However, both the gain and output pots on both of my preamps have gone totally haywire. They are both basically unusable. I like the gear. I hope Lindell has addressed this. I can't be the only one. Especially given 2 units both going south simultaneously.
