The VC1QCS has an extremely ‘linear’ mic amp…. absolutely no colouration; unlike the earlier VC1Q which had a particularly warm sound.

On the ‘CS’ unit, the line in is balanced and that’s the cleanest path to use as an input. The insert point is unbalanced and does by-pass the input stage, but there’s no real advantage as, with the gain set to unity the input stage is transparent. :)
