i have had a la-610 mk ii for almost 3 years. i use it as a 1/4" to 1/8" output device for my guitar amplifiers. i had a 1/4" to 1/8" adapter and found it to be a good size for handling guitar cables as it doesn't require many cutbacks for a cable to go through it. my guitars have adjustable volume and i have it set to either the line, aux, or master outputs. i also have my headphone output on the device and have found it handy for monitoring my tracks. it provides a clean output that is more than loud enough to be heard in a small rehearsal or recording space. it does not have any gain controls and i've found the gain setting is enough for me to hear my guitar. i've only recently tried it with a recording guitar amp, and found it to have a nice, balanced response. i'm a fan of the sound of the tubes, and this provides a good representation of that.
i am not an easy person to impress or convince. i can be very hard to deal with sometimes, especially if i don't have my way. however, the reason i got this tube channel is because the man at my favorite guitar shop had one on his desk (for a second) and i asked him about it. i had heard of it. i knew it was called a tube channel, but i had no idea that it would be that good. i did not need a dual amp channel at the time, and this was going to cost a pretty penny. but at the time, it was as good as it gets. it was worth every penny, and i was sold.
tube tech classic channel's eop technology is based on the principle that water is an ionic conductor. it has several positive and negative ions that move at different speeds through the water. this causes the electrolyte layer around the cathode to develop a negative charge, which draws in positive ions and prevents them from migrating away to the anode. as a result, the current created by the alternating positive and negative voltage at the cathode is able to flow unimpeded through the electrolyte layer. the resulting current causes the water molecules to vibrate and radiate sound. 3d9ccd7d82
