    Sounds great

    Sounds great. Used it for my lv1 rig
    Only complaint is that this thing can’t handle heat. But that’s fine I have a sound studio for that

    The IOX is everything it says it is. Very happy with IOX. Works great with my soundgrid server and LDI units. Going to get the IOC when it comes out.
