Lexicon Alpha Studio USB Audio Interface
Lexicon Alpha Studio USB Audio Interface
Price: £43.99

5.0 out of 5 stars No phantom power and poor case design, but works fine on Windows 10., 6 Sept. 2017
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Good little interface which works fine with Windows 10. Good sound quality in and out.

Minus points are:
1 No Phantom power for powered mics which you would expect from an interface of this price. Not a problem if you use preamps in front of it, but useless to people with powered mics and no preamps.

2 Ridiculous to design it with a domed top; what a stupid thing to do. Many will have a stack of little devices and effects on their desk and they'll just slide off or rock on this thing.

Overall, a missed opportunity by Lexicon. These days, Focusrite and Behringer offer better designed interfaces with phantom power. But I like the sound, in and out of this little box.

The mathematics is beyond me but overall implications, relativity and theory are fascinating. 'People of the Secret' by Ernest Scott, would be worth reading if you find this book interesting.

Will give five stars because they were cheap. But the half bottle neck (pictured) in real life is more like a full one so you won't be able to bend your top finger joint; and you'll need to buy a half bottle neck elsewhere. As I only needed the half bottle neck its a pain..

1.0 out of 5 stars cheaper leads work fine; but not these, 20 May 2017
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
If you are using this for recording, you'll find it introduces too much noise. As soon as we used one of our other (higher quality XLR cables) the noise disappeared. Often, cheaper leads work fine; but not these. If you would like to make a professional recording, stay clear of these.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good book, 30 Mar. 2017
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Mara and Dann (Kindle Edition)
Sad that, only a few years after her death, Lessing is almost unknown among the 'educated' in the UK (teachers, professors, journalists, literati etc.); and that thanks to contemporary 'educators', the young haven't heard of her (nor had our children's English teachers even after she had won the Nobel Prize for literature); she probably wouldn't have expected anything else. But she is one of the best writers of recent times and this is one of her best books. It's good to read it again on kindle.

Mara and Dann is a story about an orphaned brother and sister. Set in the future, it's a gripping tale of survival. Reading it for the first time, the first few pages seemed slightly confusing, but, as with all Lessing's writing, it's worth persevering.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very interesting, 30 Mar. 2017
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Very interesting kindle book on Alchemy. Interesting to note that Mary Anne Atwood, writing in the nineteenth century, was so well informed about the genuine chain of alchemical transmission which has been more recently delineated by Idries Shah in his book The Sufis. To unearth this information in the middle of the nineteenth century (working with her father) was an awesome achievement.
