Great sound but some buttons and connections fiddly

George D, 18.07.2018
This has really great sound, but the trade off for a Sound Devices mixer at this price is some of the connections are a bit consumer rather than pro. Example of this would be external power through USB C and the Mini HDMI for Timecode input. The Power switch is also a bit small and hard to reach. However the plus far outweighs the negatives with incredible pre amps and a really well thought out touch screen system for menu control. Also its built to last with a very durable metal construction. A great starter mixer for smaller sound setups.
