Reviews around signal (5.00 of 5)

  • This amp is easy peasy to plug up and produces a powerful crystal clear signal that solved all my problems.
  • I bought one to use in a computer audio application, to boost a mic-level signal to line-level
  • so I couldn't get enough gain and keep the signal clean
  • Cuts the noise and boosts my mic signal to a clear and powerful level with out feed-back...
  • and I have a ~18 year old dynamic microphone that just wouldn't generate a strong enough signal on it's own to make good recordings into my laptop.

Reviews around deal (5.00 of 5)

  • This is a really good, cost effective preamp that comes stock with an unreasonable amount of hum
  • I needed a flat input for acoustic 78 recordings, and thought this looked like a good deal
  • It did cost a good deal more than the Ultragain but it was a much better

  • It works pretty well for my compressor mics, but if you're looking for a nice DI box for your guitar, fuggedaboudit!

Reviews around level (4.26 of 5)

  • One other cool feature - the LED signal level meter doubles as a tube-warmup countdown timer
  • LED level monitors are highly responsive, giving quick, accurate level readouts
  • It takes care of the previous LOUD/soft levels, pretty much capping the loud (and yes, it does sound a bit compressed, but far better that than digital distortion).
  • The built-in limiter is a nice addition, though I prefer to disable it and instead record at safer (i.e. lower) level, adding any necessary limiting and/or compression in post
  • It takes care of the previous LOUD/soft levels, pretty much capping the loud (and yes, it does sound a bit compressed, but far better that than digital distortion).

Reviews around unit (4.21 of 5)

  • I'm very critical of those things, and this unit is made well, period
  • The old school knobs allow instant tactile feedback in a dark venue, and the unit puts out very low noise unless the gain is turned way up
  • You will have to play with the unit to get the levels right but for the money it is a good unit.
  • This unit does get warm to the touch, which is why I wish it had an off switch
  • The unit works just fine for the PA application I needed -- XLR microphone into amp and speakers.

Reviews around tube (4.16 of 5)

  • I did open up the unit to see how easy/difficult tube changes would be, and was impressed by the build quality and design
  • you buy this preamp, buy a nice ($25 or so) tube from an online tube reseller and put it in for best results
  • But it reproduces that rich, full, warm tube sound perfectly
  • With many tube-based mic-pre's, it is common to increase gain before accordingly adjust the output level as a means to force the warm, "tube compression" sound, but with this unit, I would recommend the opposite
  • I used the stock tube but have not yet tried a better tube

Reviews around warmth (4.16 of 5)

  • This is a really good, cost effective preamp that comes stock with an unreasonable amount of hum
  • Hand-selected 12AX7 vacuum tube with UTC technology for exceptional warmth and lowest noise?
  • This says it is hand selected for "exceptional warmth and lowest noise
  • The truth is that they work very well and provide a natural warmth and boost for vocals necessary for recording

Reviews around amp (3.80 of 5)

  • Well the little amp has difficulty keeping up with the more powerful guitar amps without driving it too hard (leading to distortion/muffled sound quality)
  • I didn't want to go with a bigger, more powerful amp, because I don't want to have to lug around big, heavy equipment
  • Well the little amp has difficulty keeping up with the more powerful guitar amps without driving it too hard (leading to distortion/muffled sound quality)
  • With the pre-amp gain control set to almost the minimum setting, and the "output" (volume level) set to the 9 o'clock position, I get more sound out of the main amp with it's settings at 5 than I did with just the main amp set to 8-9, and the sound is SO much cleaner
  • This is a really good, cost effective preamp that comes stock with an unreasonable amount of hum
  • Read remaining 9 reviews for amp

Reviews around sound (3.56 of 5)

  • Lately, I have been using it to warm up the sound of a low-cost mic, sometimes connected line-in to the same amp, and sometimes to a mixer or direct to a P.A.I have to say that, for me, it works great in both roles
  • I also tried the slightly fancier Behringer MIC200 but that gave an inferior sound
  • High end?Eliminates the "dull" sound of standard digital recorders and sound cards
  • This is what the item is said to do:Hand-selected 12AX7 vacuum tube with UTC technology for exceptional warmth and lowest noiseThe ultimate sound-enhancing tool for virtually any sound sourcePerfectly complements studio-grade condenser micsHigh-end tube mic/line preamplifier for studio, live and hard disk recording applicationsEliminates the "dull" sound of standard digital recorders and sound cardsNow let me go through what it actually does

Reviews around product (3.22 of 5)

  • Even products which aren't very well rated seem to work well and do what they promised when I get them
  • This product is very easy to use and works well with my Shure mike.
  • I understand that for studio work there are more expensive products that probably work better and, one assumes, have more features
  • This product is easy to use and works....however...it is a bit noisy.

Reviews around device (1.54 of 5)

  • You don't have to be an audiophile to hear that this awful device doesn't do any of the things the makers claim it does
  • I also didn't like having such a noisy device in my signal path.
  • If you own a decent high end microphone and want it to sound like a five dollar crap toy, by all means, invest in this horrible, horrible device from an otherwise competent manufacturer.
  • I also didn't like having such a noisy device in my signal path.
