“The Manley Vox Box could easily be called The Manley Bass Box. The Universal Audio software version along with the UA-Apollo and its Unison pre-amp technology is virtually identical to the hardware unit. These tools represent sonic excellence and enhance my intimate acoustic sound. The hardware and software versions are simply the best audio-channel for my bass. Please listen to Porters Hymn to hear for yourself.”
