To me they look a bit cheap and unstable in a negative way. I don't have experience with them but it doesn't feel good to use these for mastering

As an aside are you still using the Lucid ADDA?

I have a Redbox ADDA. I'm selling it now, only because I'm using Benchmark converters, but I ran a 2-buss chain through it for a long time and it sounded great. They're nice, but they're a little fiddly as they're 'set-and-forget' - strange, non-intuitive controls on the back of the unit, not the front - they're meant to sit in machine rooms, basically, untouched. But I think they're good value. They are very stable and built out of metal, so I would say da goose's impressions aren't accurate...

It's worth noting that if you buy CEDAR converters, this is actually what you're getting as Redbox makes 'em for CEDAR. So if it's good enough for them...

For my analog chain I do. I still think it's a good converter and right now i don't feel the need to upgrade.

Thanks for the info to both of the above!

I am looking at changing my converter chain potentially to an all in one unit, as I am getting some clocking mishaps, the Lucid looks like a really good unit! I will make a new thread about this topic though.

I use one and like it. Possibly not absolutely top of the range but very good value for money considering you get an A to D and D to A for the price. It certainly seemed solidly built when I took a look inside mine. They have a newer one out with front panel controls if you need to change settings regularly.
