Unless you can check the unit before you buy it, STAY AWAY from all things

I haven't seen their current production models, but on every unit I've 
(more than a few, since we use them at my day job), their power supply 
directly into the ground, which means that you can't use them for any kind

when you plug them into any kind of mixer or power speakers. There is no
solution - it even happens with USB audio.
