    I have an option to by one of these for really cheap. I was wondering if anyone has used them or something similar as mic pres. I noticed they don't have any xlr or 1/4 outs. How did you solve this problem.

    By "cheap", what do you mean? That old Altec gear can be very cool. Much better than the mic pres found on low cost mixers or cheap stand alone mic pres. Those have a barrier stip connection intended to be connected to a patch bay. You can simply make a "pigtails", a 3 conductor wire with an XLR on one end and spade lugs on the other. You will need at least two of these one for each input and one for the output. Good score! Kurt

    Got it from some guy in town through a friend. It was for only $150.00. So i guess the best way would be to patch it in to a patch bay. Thanks for the advise. Very helpful!!
