PS: It's amazing that when asking the board about these before I decided to buy them I heard nothing but good things....now I hear about too much gain on the output...modules not fitting into the lunchbox...I even had one preamp with the wrong color buttons on the pad and phase switch. GEEZ people! quality control!...okay i'm done
Are they consistent with one another? Before I sent mine in, the pre in the 1st slot was always low compared to the others. And, when i pushed in the phase button, the level jumped through the roof! For me, the problem was in the lunchbox, not the pre's. When I got it back all modules were consistent down the line.
If they sound good, and respond the same, I would say your cool.
Others might know better how far/tight they should fit into the board.
Max Cooper love's his API's and might know more about this... Max?
There is not necessarily too much gain on the output. Mine will go to +6 or more before they think of cliping converters. This is usually cool for me. That being said, I will sometimes pad the output if I want to drive them harder.
As for the lunchbox issue... They had a run of them being too deep. Yeah, you could have one of them. I don't know. A call to API with your serial from the box could clear that up. When I called about mine, the guy I talked to knew off the top of his head, between serials__&__ had issues.
I don't know what to tell you about the wrong color buttons.
Does it sound right?? Cool... I'll trade ya.
