    #3 is really PHAT and I'd like to know what it is eventually... :)

    Great playing and a big fat P-tone all around.

    Agreed! Many thanks for taking the time to share this

    I wanted to add, thank you for putting it up and doing all the work.

    I have an inherent bias as a Reddi owner, I guess hoping my gear has the superior sound, being able to pick it among the 3 or maybe hoping I don't get hit with the thought that there is something better that I have to pony up for.

    That being said #3 seems to have a low end that the others don't and a crisp top end to it, kind of like an ultra high and ultra low engaged my V4b. I was able to EQ that out and got a tone similar to the 1st two. I was also able to give a little nudge to the lows and highs to get the first two to act like the third. I'm not sure I have a clear favorite but when I plug into my Reddi I'm not expecting what came out of #3.

    In post 45 and 46 of the other thread you had said the Reddi was a rip off, the P15 smokes the Reddi and it sounds so much better.

    You guys are welcome for the thanks. It's been fun so far doing this.

    A little later today I'm gonna post some more. I've got the same music through both DI's but played on a Jazz bass (As requested from Italy) but did not record a control for that one (lazy). I also re recorded one from the first threesome. One that had been mentioned with some rattle noise or something, I think like someone else mentioned it's on all three and could be something I'm picking up when converting over through Soundcloud.

    I'm loving clip 1, It's clear and articulate, but warm and fat

    clip 2 is the control

    clip 3 had too much sub frequency coming through that just muddied up what could have been a really great sound.

    I have never used either of the DIs. I wish you could incorporate the Neve DI, that's what I have. I'm guessing it would be close to clip 1, but less inherently warm.

    Not a whole lot of people playing this game from the REDDI, I'm a bit confused thread.

    I don't know why I'm surprised about that though.

    My guesses:

    1. REDDI
    2. Machine direct
    3. P-15

    Edit: No matter the outcome, 1 & 3 sound great, 2 is really weak and bland.

    No, just the updated version in the same kind of case.

    I am going to have lots of fun feeding it directly into the power amp of the Traynor YBA200-2. :)

    I would add something again, last night and this morning I listened to this with two different sets of headphones and on a pair of studio monitors. I am listening again at work on computer speakers and it waters it down to the point where 1 and 2 sound almost the same and 3 is a bit louder.

    My point is anyone listening on computer speakers don't bother

    #3 handsdown here too...No experience w Reddi, but if point was that the sound of 3 is the best assume it's not that one

    Very curious see what's behind the curtain now

    I received notice earlier today, that my P 15 has shipped. I'm thinking there's going to be a Yabba Dabba Do day next week. Watch out church parishioners, the cross is going to be shaking.

    I'm guessing
    I much preferred the first. 3 was sort of scooped with too much sub. 2 was good, but lacked the clarity of high mids and low trebles of 1.

    Eh. I'm at a computer all day at work...without halfway decent speakers. Probably not going to head home and sit in front of my studio monitors after being a computer zombie all day. ;) Besides, I'm pretty sure that everyone so far has said the same thing.
