    Thanks :D
    I am just not sure if I can start product topics being a company representatives.

    In any case - happy to discuss the new product and answer your questions or whatnot! =)

    Yeah, just need to find a great demo of the pre-amp... Wonder what it sounds like. Scouting YouTube wasn't as conclusive as I thought it would be.

    We have some early demo clips here: https://soundcloud.com/mercuriall/sets/ss-11x-nrqs-studio

    Once it is out there will be plenty of reviews, I believe.

    Guys and gals, prepare you ears: SS-11X and SS-11B live comparison video!
    In this technical video we wanted to show what our Neural Hybrid Engine can do.

    On the left you can see the real SS-11B preamp and SS-11X.
    On the right you can see the level meter, spectrograph and oscilloscope. Green color is hardware and red is software. Green and red are always displayed, even though just one sample is played at a time. You can see how close the live signals are to each other (hardware/software).

    Can you spot any difference in sound on your system? Let us know what you hear!

    I dig the scientific manner of presenting the product.

    So, there is no power amp in the sim, right?

    Hey!

    SS-11X does not have a power amp, this is true. The main reason is price, as the power amp would definitely increase it.
    Of course, owners of, say, Reaxis, can combine it with SS-11X to get that power amp sag.

    Also, the built-in IRs are colored with a tube power amp. So loading them gives a very close feeling of having a tube power amp in the chain. Additionally, most people have huge IR collections, including IRs that are colored with power amps.

    Good to know! Thanks for clarifying. :) When I demo it I will probably disable the internal cabs and use Two Notes Wall of Sound or something then, it has a power amp simulation and IRs.

    Hrrrm. Are you using a Business PP account? If yes, we cannot accept these due to stupid policies...
    If not, then something is very wrong and we'll need to investigate.

    Yeah =( Not much we can do in this case, I am sorry!
    Alternative option may be creating a personal PP account or pay through PayPal without accessing the account, just entering card details directly, if you have one.
