    Yah, if you can get one, get it. It's a great pre. I used the pre out on my Epi 502 into my Crown MT 1200, man it sounded great. No need for my Alembic F1-X anymore.

    Heh, I should have looked there first, eh? :rollno: Actually, I was there not long ago, and did not see that, which is why I thought you might have heard that from another source. Well, at any rate, I look forward to this "desk top" device that they are hopefully going to come out with!

    The Quest II is a really nice sounding preamp, BTW! :)

    I hear the MF has a good stock of Quest pre-amps.
    I just looked at the site too Tom and courious about the desk tops too.

    Guilty. I have very little self control. :help:

    Actually, I was sort of second guessing my decision to sell my previous Quest II (go figure, me not wanting to sell something! :p), so this does help. :)

    I almost pushed the button myself. Not having the funds, and not needing a preamp almost weren't enough to dissuade me!

    I wonder if any have Jensens?

    Q: it's two channel, dual input. Does that mean each input is switchable to either channel, or is only one input designed to be useda at a time? i.e. active/passive?

    Me too.

    You can switch to either channel from either input, I believe. Though I am not sure if this works if you have something plugged into both inputs.

    would it be heresy to run the Quest into an IP310? ;)

    btw, finally tried the IP310 at rudy's music, and HOLY MOTHER, that is a terrific cab!

    It certainly sounds awesome! But you do have to keep looking over your back, like you're getting away with something. :p
