My Review

The definition of bang for the buck. You are getting a Neve designed mic pre with High pass filter and variable silk for the price of many of the lower priced 500 series modules. I also own the RND 5012 which is their flagship pre. The 511 shares some of the same things and def. the sound. The silk mode is great however I dont really notice much when turning the variable silk knob. A simple silk on/off like the 5012 would have been fine. These are definitely worth getting a pair of these. Acoustic guitar, vocals, drum overheads, etc.
