Not a bad sound at all, production makes all the difference. Those little Cube speakers are super bright but if you catch em off axis it's pretty good. I bet a ribbon would work wonders!

That's not a repair; it's maintenance.

As a temporary measure you can just order a new matched set of power valves and stick em in yourself, like changing a lightbulb. It'll work fine.

Any cheap mics will do the job, no need to go spending a fortune if they're for occasional use.

Yeah, not a good choice at all. It's strictly for line level signals (from a CD player, DJ deck or whatever) - you'd need a mixing desk/standalone preamp to use it with microphones.

Thirded.

Lovely bit of software, far more logical and intuitive than Pro Tools. Also supports a much wider range of plugins and instruments. And it's far cheaper.
