The preamps on this unit are fair - not fantastic, but in the price range they're pretty decent. Where the unit really excels is the EQ. Use the line inputs on the AFC-2 and it becomes a 2-channel four-band EQ that sounds fantastic with just about anything. Dialing in a great rock guitar sound is easy and intuitive. Vocals? No problem. Well worth the price just for the EQ - the preamps (which are very usable, just not spectacular) are simply a bonus.
