Re: Audioroot femto + uPRE MKII

Thanks for the info!

I ordered a Femto yesterday.  Looking forward to running this in a week or two...

I also inquired about the uPRE MKII.  The uPRE MKII is currently unavailable.  Antoine does not expect this pre to be back in stock for 6 to 8 weeks.
List price for the uPRE MKII is 795 EUR.

Looks like you will be having quite the pre collection after the Pueblo lands as well.  I'd be interested in hearing your assessment after you have an opportunity to make comparisons.

I do have a fondness for pre's.  I always have...

Femto arrived yesterday.  Nice and compact!!  I hope to run it for the first time next week.

Now to have darktrain construct a few RA stubby XLR's for me as well as a RA 5 pin XLR for the output!

Funny, mine came on the 20th.  Waiting on cables as well.  I was able to get out that night and give it a spin.

I found some rechargeable 9v that gave me 9 hours in home testing with the ak40s > nick mod lc3 > pfa!  Ran them at a show and voltage after 2 hours and 10 minutes lined right up with home testing.

Question for fellow Femto owners.  The other night I had a few very brief spot where the femto looked like it clipped.  Level meter went all the way into the red and the red boxed flashed (all the way to the right).  so I backed the gain down and everything was fine.  When I got home and loaded the files into wavelab I expected a few quick clips.  There was nothing!  In fact the highest gain peak was about -9db.  I clearly saw the level meter hit red.  I do not see/hear any brickwalling and the peaks all sound fine.  Anyone else seen this or have any thoughts on it?

Just FYI on a Femto Audioroot issue.....my unit had problem last Sunday at Panic Red Rocks.
I had to crank input gain all the way to get what I used to get w knobs @ 10 oclock position.
Voltage was OK at 15.7 - cable and mics check out ok. It worked fine the first night.
Trying to locate auth service in states - reached out to Trew Audio since they have location in ATL.
Waiting on response.
