i recently got a GK 400RB-II that I really *LOVE* the sound of when pushing my Mesa PH210.
Thing is, I live in an appartment, so I also like to use the direct out (1/4" unbal) through my Apogee Duet, to go through my monitors and/or headphones. But the tone isn't quite there as it seems to have a very prominent sizzle in the high end that sounds like clipping, even though, there is none. I checked the gain on the head and on the interface, nothing clips - but I get the "sizzle" even when it's way below the yellow on my mixer.
SO, I've located a 400RB-IV locally and was wondering if the quality of the DI is THAT much better (about a 200$ diff. in price of what I paid for my 400RB-II head).
Aaaahhh if the Markbass comp actually came with a DI like the prototype....
