I just wanted to say that BBE has the best customer service I have ever experienced. Rivaled only by Aguilar. They behave like they appreciate my business. F*nder should take lessons from Memo at BBE. I bought a second BBE BMAX AND a BMAXT after dealing with Memo at BBE. ALL of my rigs now use BBE preamps including my recording studio. As a working pro it is nice to know that my gear will work or be taken care of as quickly as possible. I am a customer for life.
