I just received the Dangerous source from Thomann.
Build quality 10 out of 10.
Sound quality 11 out of 10.
I opted for the rack mount kit and this was all of 2 minutes to fit.
I have a good convertor for recording & tracking from another manufacturer, but the Dangerous Source is the next level up in quality. If you want to hear music with sparkle, clarity and detail like never before, then you need to audition the Dangerous Source.
Highly recommended!
Fast delivery from Thomann as always.

Solider Controller ohne Schnickschnack
Stereo78, 13.09.2013
Lange habe ich nach einem Controller mit analogem Lautstärkeregler gesucht (der ist bei meinem FW-Interface nämlich digital und klingt schlecht), mit analogen Eingängen und D/A Wandler, um DAW und CD-Player gut vergleichen zu können. Alle bislang getesteten günstigeren Geräte fand ich wenig zufriedenstellend, oberhalb dieses Gerätes wirds gleich sehr teuer.

Der Dangerous Source tut was er soll - unauffällige, saubere Umschaltung, der Regler liegt solide in der Hand, der D/A Wandler klingt unauffällig, aber gut. Die Aufnahmen klingen darüber etwas räumlicher und lebendiger als mein Abhör-Interface (Profire 2626), und das Hören macht spontan mehr Spaß.

Schade, dass man den Pegel der einzelnen Eingänge und der Ausgänge nicht justieren kann (das bietet selbst der vielfach billigere Big Knob) und die Rackblende teuer hinzukaufen muss. Das Netzteil ist leider nur ein einfaches externes Schaltnetzteil, einen Hauptschalter sucht man vergebens. Der zweite Analogeingang mit Miniklinke wirkt irgendwie albern an einem Profigerät.

Alles in Allem ein nicht wirklich günstiges, aber doch gut klingendes, funktionierendes Teil.

Excellent unité de monitoring
jfherts, 19.06.2020
Très bon convertisseur pour l'écoute. Il est robuste, sonne très bien et les potards et boutons se de bonne facture. Il a quelques fonctionnalités intéressantes, c'est un peu plus que "juste" un convertisseur stéréo.

(Seul petit bémol, j'ai eu une panne après quelques mois (étonné par rapport à la réputation de la marque). Heureusement encore sous garantie, il a été réparé via le service de Thomann qui l'a renvoyé chez le constructeur. Après réparation, tout est rentré dans l'ordre.)
