RE: Peak at new Electrix Repeater MK2 and OS 2.0

"Are you sure you've got your gain stages set up correctly?"
Yes. The input is under 12 O'Clock and the tracks are at a good level.
Also, the phono button is set correctly (I believe it makes the machine 
noisier if you press it)
But still, if you listen carefully, it is far from being cristal clean
(compared to an echoplex for instance) and it is still quite tricky to use
it in a studio environment.

Are you sure you've got your gain stages set up correctly?  I've had great
results with the Repeater in a line level effects loop of a Soundcraft
board.  I can't say I've used the headphone output, but the line level outs
seem to be pretty good in the signal to noise ratio dept.

I'm just tickled to see they've incorperated direct to overdub and the
ability to preset loop length like you can with the Lexicon JamMan.  I 
I'll have to upgrade as soon as it comes out in May/June of 2006.
