Bad experience
Dalibor P. Croatia, 29.03.2020
I am a regular Thomann customer, with very good expiriences until this item. Bought the Golden Age Project Comp-2A from B stock When it came, it wasnt working at all. Had to send it back. Then waited about three weeks to receive it fixed (standard procedure). Device is in my room, never took it out. Yesterday it stopped working again. Although it is under guarantee, didnt have nerves to pack it, send it back, and wait again (especially with this situation with virus). I opened it, and took it to local electronician.
It is very stressful and dissapointing. When you buy, send it back, wait, and again dont work. Its not made well, obvieusly.

für diesen preis unschlagbar!
chaos kosmos, 07.06.2017
super einfach und intuitiv zu bedienender vintage kompressor der zusätzlich dem sound eine schöne, eigene note mitgibt. finde ihn besser als den warm audio wa76, u.a. weil er einen bypassschalter besitzt.
bei der verarbeitung muss ich einen stern abziehen da die schrauben am boden nicht ganz passend verschraubt wurden und der kompressor beim einbau ins rack somit schnell kratzer am unteren gerät/rackwanne hinterlässt.
das gerät verfügt über lüftungsschlitze oben und an beiden seiten und wird relativ schnell, relativ warm - sollte man bei der einplanung im rack bedenken!

Diable qu'il chauffe.

Le plus important : le son. Il faut reconnaître que c?est un bonheur...
Sur les prises voix, ça fait exactement ce qu'on attend d'un La-2a, pas un pet de souffle, de la chaleur et de la présence. La classe.
La construction ne fait pas du tout cheap, les potards et les switchs sont bien solides et propres, (pas comme chez warm audio...) mais cet appareil là chauffe. Mais vraiment. Pas les lampes curieusement mais le bloc alim. Le mien a carrément cramé à la cinquième utilisation, retour en SAV (merci Thomann) et quatre semaine plus tard le revoilà (et c'est bien le m^me, l'odeur de plastique cramé est toujours bien présente... beuark) pour l'instant il fonctionne et je le garde hors de tout rack, sinon la température monte (au point de ne pas pouvoir garder la main en contact sans douleur...). Prudence donc.
