Product is Fine...AMS Advertising Expired $50 Rebate
General
Your general opinion of this product.
The product is fine. It does exactly what I purchased it for, hence me purchasing a dbx unit. I was, however, very disappointed that it said "$50 Rebate" on the product information page with AMS, and I received nothing with the product regarding a rebate, so I returned to the product information page and clicked for more details about the rebate, only to discover that for said rebate, the product had to have been purchased prior to 03/31/2014...yet the offer for a $50 rebate was still listed as of 05/19/2014 when I purchased TWO of these units...and was excited that I would be getting $100 back by purchasing through AMS. I wouldn't be as concerned...but I considering I ordered well over $3000.00 worth of gear...getting $100.00 back was a nice perk. Needless to say, I'm quite disappointed with AMS for false advertising.
Quality
Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable?
For the cost of the unit, you really can't expect much more. I've only used the 2 units that I purchased for a few shows thusfar, but would anticipate a long life.
Ease of Use
How easy is this product to use? How easy is the product to use with other products? Did it take long for you to learn to use this product? Was the manual helpful? How playable do you consider this product to be?
This is a pretty easy to use product in general if you have a relative amount of knowledge about sound reinforcement. I purchased two of these units to use for feedback control on 4 monitor sends...and they are doing a sufficient job for the intended purpose.
Sound
How is the tone?
The filters seem, at least based upon how it sounds "by ear" as opposed to a spectrum analyzer, to be accurate. I'm using these to EQ 4 monitor sends, and have been able to find and cut out any feedback prone frequencies at a few live shows since I purchased them and really have no complaints...other than the false advertising regarding the $50 Rebate.
