Fletcher isn`t one of these, I can assure you, if you have been around here for a while , you should know that....
You seem to have already made up your mind to buy this box, but read what you wrote:
"There are no direct outs, so you can not use only the Pres and convert with other converters"
That`s a pretty hefty drawback if you ask me, you`re forced to use the converters forever!
You already have a decent set of converters, why not spend the money on something that will be useful for the rest of your recording career?
You may not get 8 ch of pre`s, but you can get 4 ch`s of GML pre`s or 4 of John Hardy pre`s , both universally proven and liked by most engineers.
I would hate to see you spend your hard earned cash on something that WILL eventually make you regret it.
Yeah , 8 channels of micpre`s and converters looks like a good deal for $3,3K now, but when you try to sell it for $400 in five years and nobody responds, you`ll be sorry....
On the other hand , a GML or Hardy or API you will probably never even consider to sell......
I`m just trying to get you to think long and hard about buying this unit, I have done mistakse like this myself and have learned my lesson.
Doing a Google search, there wasn`t much to find, but at least a couple of guys wasn`t too impressed with it, one guy liked it too. The good stuff is always pretty easy to find info about, also the bad stuff. At best, the D19 is probably in the middle of there somewhere.
Best of luck
