    01-19-2017 04:04
    I was looking for a Shure SM57 when i stumbled upon youtube tests & reviews of this GLS Audio clone. I was skeptic at first but some of those tests are extremely well done and convincing. I thought...Read more on Audiofanzine

    Boss DI-1 Direct Box - Good, but too loud

    01-03-2017 19:36
    It's a good DI, but the output is really loud compared to other DI's. It works fine to roll off on a normal mixer but some inexpensive preamps on my scarlett 18i8 for example can't handle it's loud...Read more on Audiofanzine

    11-29-2016 15:16

    EELA Audio S191 - In the big league

    11-29-2016 03:51
    EELA is a brand that’s not widely known by the masses. They mostly develop products for broadcast/radio applications. Fact is, you rarely see their products. I bought mine essentially because it w...Read more on Audiofanzine

    11-25-2016 05:28
    This is an elegant solution to mics that require a lot gain. Device uses phantom power but does NOT pass this on to mics. (A different model is available for mics that require phantom power). Atta...Read more on Audiofanzine

    11-25-2016 05:24
    Legendary Mackie build quality and performance in a compact size. After using Mackie mixers in live sound and recording I was confident this mixer would work well for podcasting and I was not disa...Read more on Audiofanzine

    Audio-Technica ATR6550 - Excellent Value

    11-25-2016 05:20
    Works very well with DSLRs as well as smartphones with a simple adaptor. No, it's not like a Sennheieser but neither is the price. Mounts easily to DSLRs and uses easy to find and replace regula...Read more on Audiofanzine

    Blue Microphones Radius for Yeti - Is worthless too strong a word?

    11-25-2016 03:18
    Very expensive, very heavy and will break instantly. This mount is not made by Blue. The set screw is made of the worlds worst pot metal and breaks on the slightest pressure. This a widely reporte...Read more on Audiofanzine

    11-25-2016 03:06
    Everyone's first USB mic I guess, easy to use for podcasting, skype and gaming. Audio quality is rich and powerful with a nice proximity effect if you choose. Serious podcasters still use it with ...Read more on Audiofanzine

    PreSonus Monitor Station 2 - You can't smell, see or taste it (which is all as expected), yet you can't do without it

    11-24-2016 06:32
    Acheté en avril 2015, pour 275 euros neuf chez nos amis allemands, je vois que l'engin à augmenté de presque 100 euros... Qu'en dire? Le test d'audiofanzine décrit tout ce qu'il y a dire sur les...Read more on Audiofanzine

    dbx 286 s - Not as good as the previous model 286A!

    11-23-2016 08:44
    Using with RE20, Mackie Mixer, side by side with 286A. New S model sounds harsh and brittle by comparison. Still a good unit for the money, but I am shopping for another good condition 286A to re...Read more on Audiofanzine

    11-23-2016 08:17
    Using the RE20 for podcasts and audiobooks. Switched from Rode Procaster which is a wonderful microphone with a distinctive character that didn't quite suit my voice. The RE20 was a much bigger jum...Read more on Audiofanzine

    Roland SVC-350 Vocoder - The OG Robo Voice

    09-27-2016 21:32
    There's a ton of Vocoders out there, but this one is the classic 80's Bboy version! It just cuts right through the music like no other and is also the one used to make the classic "aah, this stuff ...Read more on Audiofanzine

    Blue Microphones BALL - I collect these mics. Have three.

    09-27-2016 16:32
    A phantom powered dynamic mic? Yup. This was Blue's first attempt at phantom powered dynamic mics, and the first in the world at the time. When this mic was discontinued, Blue went on to make the E...Read more on Audiofanzine

    RCF MD 1708 - New in Box. Took me hours to figure out the wiring.

    09-27-2016 16:06
    Thank god it came with a cable. Wiring is just like TS to XLR cable wiring: XLR pins 1+3 and joined together; which are the shield and pin 1 on the mic side. The shield doesn't have a pin on the...Read more on Audiofanzine

    PSI Audio A25-M - Does "impartiality" really mean a thing for speakers... ?

    Kawai RV-4 - It's little known - and that is a pity

    08-22-2016 03:39
    Kawai’s RV4 is an electronic hardware reverb featuring 8 in/out channels (4 stereo, with jack & AES/EBU type 2 connectors) with MIDI in/out. 50 good, 1980s-type presets and a lot of parameters can...Read more on Audiofanzine

    Sony PCM-D50 - Sony PCM D-50 will not turn on.

    07-11-2016 07:40

    Zoom 1201 - Idiot proof FX utility

    06-30-2016 13:30
    Certainly not high-end, and lacking in deep editing capability or anything much in the way of multi-FX, the unassuming 1201 still became something of a minor cult item amongst late-1990s home studi...Read more on Audiofanzine

    Focal Alpha 80 - Look no further

    06-30-2016 00:52
    Since April 2015 they're in my homestudio set, I've been discovering them progressively since then and I guess they certainly need an extra breaking time, still they're already really good. Great ...Read more on Audiofanzine
