Big time saver
First of all Radial gear is top notch. If I didn't already know where it was made I'd swear that it was made in Germany. The level of quality and attention to detail on all the Radial products I own and have uses has always impressed me.
Sound wise it's clear as a bell and dead silent. I have no issues with output level like I've had with certain other manufactures which will remain nameless. Also after using a couple different active reamp boxes I prefer the passive version. It's much more quiet. This box isn't at all expensive and works great. I can now reamp at home instead of running to the main studio.
For me this box is a big time saver. I live in a bit of a noisy location. I prefer to work from home but with trains and trucks around most of the day the noise can ruin a good take. Now I can record my guitars and bass direct and wait until all the train and truck traffic dies down for the day and reamp at my convenience.
If there is session ruining noise when reamping I just have to hit rewind and reamp again since I already recorded my great take direct earlier in the day! That saves me a lot of time and frustration.
The only thing that I would have liked to see done differently was the plastic jacks. I would have preferred to see all metal ones. However the plastic isn't that cheap stuff you find in other brands and I seriously doubt they will wear out any time soon under normal use. The bottom line is if you have a situation similar to mine of just want the flexibility to reamp at a later time get one of these. You won't be sorry.
