So it finally arrived (not from Drop). It looks much, much better in person. In fact, it looks badass. I read some comments about the volume knob, but nothing to really worry about. I coupled it to the DX7s with both RCA and XLR to do some A/B testing, and I immediately noticed the gain is slightly higher with XLR, so I think it makes more sense to use its XLR inputs. I got some cheap XLR cables from Aliexpress, which I kinda regret now, since it's completely generic and I have no idea what wire, etc' (it should have had Neutrik connectors, but the description was false and it's just some generic ones instead).
