Well, I have had this unit for 6 months now and I have mixed feelings. It does many things so right, but thats not the whole picture. This is my second unit. The first one had several problems ie...  1) Low voltage for the amp trigger lead.  2) A horrible distortion that fed through the entire system. I returned it for unit 2 which works about 95% of the time. About once every 2 months or so it locks up and has to be rebooted. Now, for the functions. This product is a pain in the butt to use. You have to go through many steps inorder to use everyday functions. That is a pain in the first order. That being said this things sounds amazing, and can be tweaked through the EQ settings to suit any taste. hope this helps audio peeps.
