Excerpt: As for sound quality, this little unit is surprisingly quiet when a guitar is hooked directly into it and dead silent when a balanced xlr is connected. Very little coloration is introduced by the unit so not much adjusting is required on the output side.
Summary: This device exceeds my expectation. I'm using it primarily as an external USB soundcard connecting my computer to my stereo (Denon stereo hooked up to B&W speakers). I sometimes use my headphones (Audio-Technica) with it. The sound quality is very very good. Setting up is very easy, it's basically plug-n-play.
Summary: When I first got this in the mail, I couldn't figure it out and it had a high pitched feedback. I was about to send it back for a refund, but i read some things online and gave it another shot. I'm glad i did because i use it all the time now. And I found out the high pitched frequency was because of my usb port so i moved it around and repositioned the usb plug and i have no feedback now at all and great quality.
Summary: You really get what you pay for. Or less than you pay for. We've owned this for less than a year, and have had problems since the beginning. The most persistent is that it simply won't turn on. To activate, you simply connect the USB cable and hope the light turns on. If not, you unplug it and try again. But like we did, you will do this many, many times and sometimes it just won't come on. So you give up and try again the next day and hope it works.
Summary: I spent more money for this Lexicon USB interface, thinking it would be less hassles than the $20 or $30 cheaper interfaces from other companies. Wow, what a piece of trash this is! I mean, I loaded the Cubase LE5 software and then the Lexicon Pantheon Reverb software that comes with the unit. The drivers are on the Lexicon disk and the Pantheon reverb is optional to install. I installed everything as instructed in the instructions. Nothing works!
