Drawmer CMC2

One of the best products I own, in terms of value for money, sturdyness, beauty, functionality and especially quality. It simply perfectly works. It does all it promises, without lacks or imperfections. It maintains the same stereo image at any knob setting, no noise added, buttons feel great. I am no related in any way with Drawmer, I already own one of their most famous compressors (the 1968 tube fet stereo compressor) but I know nothing about the company or the brand.
My only complains: if they added an auxiliary output to send to a spectrum analyzer I could gain an extra stereo output from my audio interface. Oh and the auxiliary input could have a little bit more headroom, but mine are just considerations from a very very happy user.
Highly reccomended.

I'm using it for 10 months. From UA Apollo to ADAM A77x, Neumann Kh120a, Avantone Mixcubes.

Sound quality

At first sound quality is good, nice stereo imaging. After 3 months volume knob started to distort, scratchy all the time. Basically distortion all the time. Also got some weird shielding issues that I can hear my HDD running from my speakers. (Yes, I know about grounding issues but If I connect another controller it's gone, just with CMC2) Headphone amps a bit hot and sound coming from it even if you turn the volume all the way down. Aux input is too low.

Ease of use, features

It's easy to use, pretty straight forward. Reverse polarity, mono functions, listening to just sides are nice. No calibration for volume of different speakers.

Bang for buck

It's a common issue with this product that volume knob crackles. It's a cheap unit. I've sent an e mail to Drawmer Tech Support four months ago, they asked my address to send a replacement knob. Nothing showed up, and no replies to my emails. Bad customer support.
