    July 2013 - Sound on Sound review of the Ocean Audio 500 series modules

    Sound on Sound magazine published a great review of our 500 series modules.

    Sound on Sound's Conclusion:
    Given the quality of both sound and construction, all these modules are a steal at the asking price — especially when you consider that Ocean Audio's products are hand-crafted in the UK. Just as I'd anticipated, both the Mic Pre and the EQ modules have proven themselves to be really versatile and useful tools over the few months that I've had the opportunity to test them. The mixing/summing system, though, is something that's rather more special. It opens up a whole new world of possibilities in the 500-series format, and enables you to build and expand a high-quality mixing system in a piecemeal fashion.
