Sound: PreAmps are flawless! Has a truly warm and "un-digital" sound. When using the Pantheon Reverb, I must admit -as a Convolutin Reverb-fan - that it beats everything I have heard in Reverbs!! - if you listen to sounds solo through the PlugIn, it's not the "best" - but it does something with the mix if I use it!! - it's just like glue! It just sounds as it's supposed to sound... weird, but true! Feature: I bought this unit for my Horn-Section for playing live! Having hi-quality pre-amps all with; - 48 V - Comp/Lim, EQ, Reverb - Easy access to a volume knob for each instrument - all in just 1 HE!! ..makes this unit quite incredible, actually! All the features are standard, nowadays (as of fall 2010) - but still now - not in this size, and absolutely not in this quality! Ease of Use: Well. All good things have a flip-side; The software that controls the unit, is almost fancyfull spartanic... For all of those wanting bling and glowing colours... this is not for them. On the other hand; It works. It does exactly what it's supposed to do. That's good. The features are rather limited, though. One can make a setup, save it - and the unit will startup with this setup next power-up. Good for live-use, where no Laptop is wanted. (On the other hand; IF something is wrong - you can't change anything... so you better take the laptop along... just in case!) Quality: If I would have gotten a "blind-unit" - e.g. a unit with no name/brand on it; I would NEVER had said that it's a Lexicon!! NEVER! This suprises me quite alot, actually. It reminds me more of the "Tank-design" of the Pro-Reverbs, like 480+960. It's really sturdy! All metal casing. No cheap knobs on the front (although not metal). All connections are perfect fitted. This is really no cheap unit, I can tell... - it's a unit for using, alot! Value: The actual value of the unit is faaaar underrated! You can get one really cheap today. Unfortunately - this means also that it's not good to own/sell, since there is no demand... Manufacturer Support: hmmm. this is really not so good. If Lexicon fixes their support-side, and also create modern, and reliable audio-drivers; they will certainly get a better reputation... (I worked in a music-shop once, and nobody there ever said something good about the Lexicon audio-Interfaces...) Albeit; - I use this unit on a Mac with my "old" system 10.5.8 - and it works well. Sometimes strange things happen, but actually - not as often as with my mBox2 from Digidesign... now how's that... The Wow Factor: ...it's not sexy... It's not a unit for showing off! but it's doing all it should. And if it does - your products - the music - get's a better chance of being real sexy! Overall: Lexicon was really early out on the market with this unit! I think that there will be a flod of similar units coming soon, most not being better - some improving things, but certainly being more expensive...
