Ken, the reviews are about right and so are you. By adding my own XLR and matching transformers I indeed have a batch of junk plus little boxes with level pads. Since I’m mono AM voice only I forget that with music the mixer noise level would show up.
But I stand by my belief that this mixer is good for simple streaming and broadcasting where audiophile quality isn’t the objective.
A lot of the top engineers build low-noise pre-amps and I knew one who designed and built his own mixer, but that’s a huge long-lasting project that cannot be done in one night.
It is peculiar that with so much good equipment out there it’s so hard to find the right mixer.
