    Comments about Mackie Big Knob Passive Monitor Controller:

    Bought one of these, proved out all the cables as perfect and silent, plugged it in, and found lots of hum at high volume. Tried some more known to be good cables and heard the same. Calibrated the source volume with the Big Knob. Still there was hum. Returned the unit for a replacement. The replacement was better, but not without noise.In the end it's being returned. You might live with it, but I wouldn't. I bought this to not have to go to my rack and turn the volume. Now, I simply couldn't turn it too loud or noise would appear. I'm not trading one inconvenience for another.
