Joemeek One Q vs. PreSonus Eureka?


Does anyone have any experience with both of these channel strips?

Any ideas how these compare in sound and performance?

I've had a little experience with the Joe Meek stuff and have been largely unimpressed by it. I think it's just the stigma alone in knowing that he murdered his landlord lady for not paying his rent. I don't give a crap if he was a good engineer. And anybody that wants to make their money on his name shouldn't make any money at it either because of that. So I would say Eureka for what you are considering in every sense of the term. Their stuff also has a particularly good build quality that I have been quite impressed by. And I'm not easily impressed by much of anything in the audio world. Most of it is so poorly assembled, manufactured that they have a lot of gall putting the word Professional on it. Not so with the build quality of the Pre-Sonus gear. It's built extremely well, very impressive internally.

I don't personally own any Pre-Sonus stuff but I might on my next purchase.

Richard, I know you have a Eureka already. The Joe Meek, unless its an original one, is a sidewise step for you. Look in the for sale section here and contact Micheal Hodecker about his ADK AP-1 he has for sale. Its not a strip but its really good. Or maybe go for a big step up and get with audiokid (Chris) about his SPL Goldmic pre he has up. Its a very good unit and both of these are a serious piece of kit.

I've tried a couple of the Joe Meek units and found them so underwhelming, I don't even remember the model numbers. There was no need to remember them. Particularly so, because I was so underwhelmed and unimpressed by them. And also being a woman, I didn't particularly like their green color paint which I found somewhat unflattering to look at.

Green is NOT my favorite color. It makes my sound feel green and I'm not green.
