Let’s start by saying and understanding this: converters are the most important part of your recording chain. What goes in and what you hear coming out is done through converters. So getting the “most detailed, defined, widest, tallest and deepest” conversion possible is the goal. That happens through high-quality units like this SE.
This PSX-100SE unit was my main converter for over a decade. I upgraded recently only because I now track and mix with a lot more than 2 channels. But, many mixing and mastering engineers hang on to these SE models to run the 2-track/2-bus/mix/etc) though because the converters are so good.
The SE has an upgraded (lots of hand picked components) analog board with higher quality bi-FET opamps. It’s also got a filter on the power supply to clear up the AC. The D/A section also has a new third-order Bessel filter. Overall, you will notice more headroom in your mixes with much better imaging & sharpness and a more defined and tighter low end.
This unit is in good shape, a few scuffs here and there, but overall very clean and more importantly, works perfectly. For full details on all the features and i/o, click here.
