That looks really cool! I like the fact that you can cascade them for
multi-track, though that would get pricey. I could see buying four of 'em
for a jazz recording though.
But it's funny how manufacturers are still touting the NE5532 op-amp. I
used them over 25 years ago in my designs for Quad Eight. They're fine (a
lot of legendary consoles used them - Neve, Quad Eight, SSL, etc) but there
are many better op-amps available now.
