Douglas, sure thing. I too think it would be stupid to have those TRS inputs on the front unbalanced if they're part of the Neutrik connector.

That's why I'm getting annoyed cause they don't seem to know their arse from their elbow. One person says one thing, the manual says another, the website another. I mean the manual and website say the 1/4" jacks on the front are TS which would indicate to me, unbalanced. The website and the manual list 2 different s/n ratios, etc etc. Go figure.

So, has it been resolved whether the TRS inputs on the front are balanced?

But, for my use, I am specifically interested in knowing whether the XLR inputs are balanced. Does a "Neutrik connector" automatically imply a balanced input?

Thank you,

Ryan

I gave Douglas the info, but haven't heard back yet. Hint hint ;)

Since this thread is active again...

I went ahead and bought a USBPre 1.5. Just got it in today. I'll let everybody know what I think of it very soon.

DSE, the 410 webpage is bad

Hey Spot, the link for the Firewire410 is screwed up. It has your review of the firestore instead and it says the 410 is $1995 which is the firestore price.

The MOTU 828mkII is a great buy. We have two of those, and Digital Performer. http://www.motu.com/

Re: Recommended preamp and A/D solution for home and location recording

<<<-- Originally posted by Robert Knecht Schmidt : I'm looking for a microphone preamp and A/D solution for home recording, and if it's portable enough to use for location audio in conjunction with a laptop, all the better.>>>


There's a couple of high end units no one has yet mentioned.
Apogee miniMe and Grace Designs Lunatec.

Neither of these units is cheap, but they are both known for great sound.
The Lunatec is only AES/EBU out however and the miniMe is USB.

I wish they would add a firewire port.

I'm not quite sure if this would work for you, but have you looked at the Korg D-12? I had one, and it handled almost everything... except power interruptions.
