    Didn't find any mention of this anywhere in a search but apologies if it's already been covered here. If this thing sounds as good as it looks it's gonna be real tasty:

    Never saw it before, but I'd be leary of a product where the DI is placed in just about the worst place it could be.

    If you're referring to where it's physically located on the front panel, it does appear to be in a somewhat ticklish spot. The real estate on the front panel of a box like that isn't exactly swimming with space. The location of the DI jack isn't necessarily an indication of how the thing will actually sound. I'd be more interested in a unit like this for its preamps, an not neccessarily it's DI.

    I'd still like to see some reviews on it before I get too excieted about it though.

    Agreed, but layout is indication of design and how well thought out the overall design is. If a product has that kind of what I would call flaw in the layout, there is likely other things in side that might have the same lack of thought.

    I bet if they made the HUGE Knobs smaller, they could find a better place for the DI input :wink:

    This seems intersting, and the switchable Output circuitry would likely do some good IMO.
    If this is truly on-par with API, etc, then it is a great bargain ($3450 for 8 channels and switchable outputs).
    Output attenuation would be nice for driving the Preamp if desired...

    :cool:
