Any opinions on this brand of sound equipment?

It's a very serious question and right now the price is still right. It closes at 8:44 am Pacific this morning. I would like one and the DBX stuff will likely go nuts.

Orange, do you seriously want a compressor? Usually us guys are going for zero compression.

It's a limiter and noise gate as well...yes, it's a piece of equipment I need for my recording center.

If the price doesn't run away or it doesn't get sniped from under me it's coming home with me.

For the price and what I know from the recording classes I took in the 1990s this is an essential piece of equipment for a serious, more professional studio. Compression isn't the enemy, it's the usage in the hands of a nincompoop. The noise gate and limiter alone will be of great help.

I'm serious about the kind of recording I want to do. I'm not just going to copy the Boomtown Rats...

I know that Rolls has been around for a while but have never used any of their products. Most of it appears to be built fairly well. Will look forward to your review.

Power strips are your friends, but only if you don't get too crazy. I have an AR power strip that even yelps if there is a problem with the power. A pair of Cleanline Jr's round it out, but I've learned not to use them for power amps.

So, then- what’s a good power strip to use? What’s a good brand/model that people are using? I want one to mount on the back of a rack, don’t need more than six outlets. I looked at a few reviews, but don’t think they’re written by people with high current equipment. I even read one that said the owner disassembled it and found 20ga wiring inside! SERIOUSLY?

Mark, since I wrote the post you quoted, I have sold my Cleanline Jr's and have found happiness with hospital-grade isolation transformers. I don't remember what company made the Cleanline Jr's, but they made a rackmount "power strip." Have you considered a PS Audio regenerator? Or...you could make your own power strip, choosing your own case, plug, cord, outlets and internal wiring. Yeah, there are gobs of cheapies out there...

edit - I remember now, the Cleanlines were made by a company called VansEvers. I still have their Companion power strip, and it is a good one. I use it in the shop, not for audio.

Look for anything by Furman.
Very popular with Pro Music and Home Studios.
The 'Bays full of a variety of types. You should be able to find something there....
