    Yep - I've had mine about a month now; it's the berries! With Cream!!!

    I've only used it for classical and some solo acoustic guitar stuff - haven't really checked out the analog tape emulation. I have used the "FAT" amp & it's a lot like the Flamingo (duh!). The converters & wordclock (I'm using it for studio master with a GENx6 as distributer) are first rate. The only minor -[very minor]- quibble I have is the unbalanced inserts - if they'd been balanced, it would be easier to interface the analog & digital sections separately with other gear (like using a tube pre-amp through the Spider's converters, or using the pre-amps direct to analog multitrack).
    Buy one, you'll like it!

    What do these arachnids cost? No price on the website.
