from Very Good UpgradeGot this to replace my old Rean 1/4" TRS Patch bay.The cheap Rean would be hard to compare, even though both are made by Neutrik!?Good enough build quality. It would have been even better if the case fully enclosed the in-ards.Overall good.

from Nice UnitLet's face it. A good patch bay is nothing more than that... a good patch bay. With that being said, this is a basic, but nicely built unit. If you want all kinds of fancy "bells and whistles", then look elsewhere. This thing does what it's supposed to do; no more and no less. Plugging and unplugging has a nice feel; and once you plug something in, it takes a decent amount of force to get it back out, which is always a good thing when it comes to patchbays. The housing of the unit is good quality, and removing and flipping channel cards is easy. The thing I really like about this unit is that all channels are isolated from ground, and there's no chassis ground. This gives you numerous options in matters of grounding your circuits on an as-needed basis.On the negative side, the instructions that come with it are unecessarily complicated and confusing. Do yourself a favor and ignore them. Just look at the diagrams that are screen printed on the top of the unit, draw out on a sheet of paper exactly what you want to do, use common sense, and go from there. It's as simple as that.While the price is a wee bit high, overall this is a good patchbay.
