    What are the quality of the preamps on the Emu 1820M? How would they compare with something like M-Audio DMP3? Is it likely that the 1616M will have the same preamps? Thanks

    The 1616M will have Joe Meek (is that spelled correctly?). They might be considered a cut above, but I've heard from a lot of people that the DMP3 is very under-rated, so it's hard to tell.

    Sorry I should have said TF-Pro preamps, but I think these are updated Joe Meeks as Ted Fletcher set up on his own. I like his limiter that alters asymmetrical waveforms, which I get from one of my mics.

    The E-MU 1616 and 1616M will NOT have Joe Meek preamps. It is a total new design that is rumored to be much, much better.

    The 1820 and 1820M used the Ted Fletcher Pro mic pre which was basicly the Joe Meek VC1Qcs mic pre.

    Never thought very highly of the M-audio mic pre. I certainly think the E-MU TFpro mic pre is better sounding.
