"The first time I ran tracks through the 1608-II, the API punch and clarity were immediately evident. It gives me tons of headroom, with the option to push into the op-amps and transformers for more color and 'glue,' but the image never folds. Its 16 API pres and EQs, along with its insane amount of routing options make this board amazing for tracking and mixing. I love this thing!"
