Hey Folks, A while back I posted that I purchased a Behringer Tube Ultra-Q and I was fairly certain the unit was defective. I checked my wiring with Behringer and with some of the knowledgeable forum people and I confirmed my wiring was okay. I sent the unit back and after waiting for more than a month ( I will never do buisness with Musicians Friend again.) I have the new unit at home and set up. This unit unlike the last one, works flawlessy! But I have a question.. There are 2 VU Meters one for each channel and they show the amount of "warmth" the Sovtek Triode tubes are adding to the signal. These VU meters barely move unless I crank the volume up to the earbleeding point (in other words, so loud I can't bear it!). It says in the manual something about a 6Db correction the unit applies to the input signal when using unbalanced XLR Connections. I am assuming it's -6Db at the input. Could that reduction and possibly too little pre amp output voltage be the culprit? What can I do to remedy the problem? I am guessing that I just have to live with it... The unit is obviously working as the parametric EQ works fine and I know the tubes are imparting thier harmonics onto the signal because when I defeat the unit (turn it off and it hard bypasses) I can most certainly hear the difference (and it sounds much better on!) Any suggestions or information would be greatly appreicated! Thanks a million!
