Radial Powerstrip delivers well again ... with a mod
This is the second Powerstrip I've purchased. This time I did a couple of things to both units that improved functionality. First, the 'guide plate' inside the unit performs no useful function when using with CAPI mic preamps - all it does is add weight - so I removed it from each unit. Read more
Second, having the power LED on the back panel made no sense to me, so I modified both units by mounting the LED through a hole in the front panel (extending wires from the rear circuit board). I am still concerned the units do not deliver the full +/-16 Vdc as per the API 500 series spec (both units deliver only about -14.8 on the negative rail), however the CAPi preamps seem to be operating reliably so far. As always, Studio Economik pricing was good, and delivery was quick.
