    Tascam LA-81mkII reviews

    LA-81mkII 8-Channel Balanced-to-Unbalanced Audio Converter is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 1.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very utilitarian While its role is not very glamorous, the LA-81 (or Lady-One) performs its job admirably. Converting balanced XLR to unbalanced RCA, plus trim pots to go from +4 to -10, this is perfect for integrating consumer gear into a professional studio environment.
