But I meant poor quality, sound wise - just played with words to stress when they sell loads of trash in one box (especially if I won't use some of it) - and then for the final price, you could achieve better sound with separate tools, that you actually will use completely.normen wrote: ↑25 Apr 2018Cheap doesn't equal to bad. But yeah, if then its NOT cheap for you as a buyer then bewareRobC wrote: ↑25 Apr 2018More like nightmare. They try to sell cheap MIC inputs, with cheap preamps, cheap instrument inputs with more cheap preamps, cheap speaker outs, and finally some cheap headphone out with a weak headphone amp ~ for expensive - on 90% of the wonder boxes. I'm expected to buy that.
My favorite is when on an all in one box they sell as: "You need this! It's awesome! Everything all in one! Rad sound!"
Separate devices (on the same website): "Don't be a fool to buy a mediocre-sounding all in one box!"
Also, gotta love those manufacturers' website, where everything is full of marketing text, and you barely get useful technical info. Heck they even tend not to show not just the price tag, but also some poor quality specifications.
On consumer devices - that's okay. But when you see them doing the same with ~ $ 1000 category devices... Even professional ones. Like, do they think the professionals will give a damn about the marketing text? ...or are there even there gullible people?
