Aguilar DB-659

  1. This is probably a dumb question, but looking at front panel shots of the Aguilar DB-659 preamp, I don't see an on/off switch. I haven't been able to find a photo of the rear, and the one I played in a music store was rack mounted and I couldn't see the rear panel.

    Is there a switch on the rear? Does anyone have a photo of the rear panel of that preamp?

    It seems that not having a power switch on the front panel would be pretty inconvenient.

    I had the 659 and upgraded to the DB680. The power switch is on the back panel for the 659 but on the front of the 680.

  3. Ah, ok, thanks... that's as I suspected. I don't like the idea that the power switch isn't on the front panel. They seem to have plenty of available real estate on the front panel, I wonder why they didn't put it there?

    I always wonder that on rack gear.
