Replaced an old Mackie Big Knob.

Pros -
* The sound is great.
* Sub/mono and channel cut options are very useful.
* Aux in is good.

Cons
* The DIGI connection was very noisy with my RME 802. Too noisy when using headphones so I stopped using it in favour of the analogue connection.
* The flat format on the desk is a bit crap. Makes the labels hard to see (unless you look straight down on it) and is unergonomic. I use a laptop riser to place at an angle and that works well.
* I miss a level display (something the Mackie had)
* I also miss the ability to trim the gain of each input (something the Mackie had).

Monitorcontroller mit Desktop Formfaktor
Tonverarbeiter, 22.06.2020
Das Feature set des Controllers ist für den Preis sehr OK und das Gerät ist solide in einem Metallgehäuse ausgeführt.

Meßergebnisse kann man im Testbericht nachlesen, gibts wohl nichts zu meckern. Bezüglich Klangeinfluss kann ich nichts bemängeln. Tut also was er soll, so wie andere Geräte in der Preisklasse.

Das Alleinstellungsmerkmal ist jedoch der Formfaktor. Es ist ein sehr flaches Gerät (ca. 3cm hoch). Die Regler sind nochmals ca 1.5cm hoch und wertig ausgeführt. Ist also eher unauffällig neben Tastatur und DAW controller zu plazieren und man sieht gut auf die Bedienoberfläche.

Die Schalter sind mechanisch ausgeführt und haben ein leises ein/aus klick was nicht störend ist. Das umschalten der Monitorpaare erfolgt also z.b mit A ausschalten und B einschalten (man kann daher auch mehrere Monitorpaare in Betrieb haben). Für mich ist das Umschalten eine einzige Betätigung indem ich die beiden Tasten gleichzeitig drücke.

Eine kleine LED am Schalter zeigt die Schalterstellung an. Die Mixchecktasten haben eine rote LED, Inputwahl eine grüne LED, restliche LEDs orange. Unter dem Masternob gibts noch eine blaue LED die anzeigt das der Controller eingeschaltet ist.

Was man sich vorab überlegen sollte, ist das an der Rückseite eine menge Klinkerkabel angesteckt werden müssen und auch entsprechend platz brauchen.

A very good monitor controller, that has a neutral sound quality
Lysholm, 18.04.2019
Positive until now (I've had it for more months now):
- Very solid build
- Neutral sound quality
- Good sounding DAC
- Very nice mixing features
- handle 3 sets of monitors + sub
- nice big volume knob
- beautiful slim / flat metal design

Negatite:
- The big volume knob, seems very very fine in movement. And turning on it is like moving the dail in jelly. Not that it's all bad, but it gives you a funny and not so solid felling. It's a minor thing that you get used to. Some would actually like it :)
- Thin power adapter cable. Would have loved it more solid.
- Not 100% sure about long time durability, but I think it's good.

Bon produit
Bootcho, 23.12.2019
Conforme à la description et aux caractéristiques.
Bonne fabrique. Je trouve que l'alimentation chauffe un peu au niveau du contrôleur mais rien de bien méchant
