    I got one of these on the cheap (~$150 including shipping) and it sould arrive tomorrow. I simply couldn't pass it up to add 2 more inputs to my DAW. What should I expect this thing to sound like? Are the converters really "impossible to clip"?

    I see these things go for about 475-500 new, so I assume they are probably worth about $250-300 on the used market......unless they actually suck balls and i never use it......then 150 doesnt seem like to much of a deal..

    How long has the 386 been out for? I've seen reviews from about 4 years ago....actually pretty good reviews in sound on sound and pro audio review.

    Well, whatever, must just be getting a little anxious :cool:

    How did that 386 turn out. I'm getting one on the cheap as well, and I've never heard one, but figured how far wrong could I go. Any comments or reviews? Thanks.

    That line of dbx is notorious for having poor tubes. Be prepared to ditch the factory tubes and ante up for a set of Sovteks or Mullards.
