Biamp 1642
« on: June 23, 2019, 07:00:29 pm »

Well it's been 7 years since someone posted in this sub-forum, but the hell with it.

I'm starting to assemble a small home studio, getting pieces like a 1/2" 8 track tape machine, etc, and I saw a Biamp 1642 come up for sale locally for a decent price. Power supply and cable included, everything working as it should. There doesn't seem to be much info out there on the internet regarding them, so what can any of y'all tell me about it? Do you like the way they sound, are they noisy, anything and everything you can. I've seen them mentioned on gearslutz a few times as being able to get a really nice driven preamp distortion, and that they're solid work horses, the only real downside being the channels aren't modular. So what's the word?
