Great piece of kit!
Paul8081, 01.01.2016
Despite my first delivery being faulty, lots of pretty lights but no audio, I have no problem giving this desk five stars.
I expected a steeper learning curve going from an analogue desk to digital, but was up and running in no time.

Now to dive into the guts of what this desk will do of course mean some manual reading, but basic in and out to the DAW (Logic Pro X in my case) was quick and painless.
The sound is flawless to my ears, stuff I had already recorded sounded fuller and with more depth and resolution.
The touch screen works well, very responsive and the graphical readouts are useful.

I have now been using the QU16 for some weeks, I did at the start have some problems with glitching, but after changing from having the QU plugged in to a USB Hub to directly into the computer that seems to have been cured and I have had no other issues. I have had no regrets at all and recommend this desk to anyone thinking of buying.

5 Star Product

This is my first digital desk but found the QU really easy to get to grips with. Build quality is solid like you would expect from A&H and it looks good too - received many oohs and aahs on it's first outing! Sound wise, there was noticeably less coloration than previous desks I've used and seemed to be less noise/hiss through the PA when the venue was silent. Best of all, A&H are continuing to add new features with each update so it keeps getting better! Would definitely recommend.
