Hmm..

The eq's first. They're actually not that bad sounding, but if you need to set two channels to the same - e.g. stereo setups - it's very hard. Very bad tolerances, at least at the unit I've tried.

As for the tube part of this, I have absolutely no respect for topologies where you take a standard, behringer type circuit and put it thru' a stage, loading half a tube with 3 transistors and then claim the system to be a tube device.

The tube circuit - especially the HT high voltage power supply - looks like it has been designed by someone knowing little about HT voltages. Oh yes, I've already repaired a couple of blewn supplys.

In my opinion you'd be much better off with a a Mackie and some half-decent tube line drivers, or at least wait until TLA gets their act together.

But then again, I'm a little old-fashioned..
