    Hi Guys,

    Getting my taxes done today, and in less than a week I'll have about $2k to spend on mic pres.

    Here are what I am thinking about. I only really need about 2-3 channels of preamps, for guitar and vocal overdubs.

    I am thinking about the following pres:

    1. Great River ME-1NV ($1075)
    2. Great River MP-2NV ($2150)
    3. Averill 312a Rackmount 1 channel ($899)
    4. Averill 312a 2 channel Rackmount ($1229)
    5. Vintech 1272 "Dual 72" ($1350)
    6. Vintech x73i w/PS ($1600)
    7. FMR Audio RNP ($475)

    If you could pick 2 for a combonation around $2k, which would you choose and why?

    FYI---> I am having a hard time picking between (#1 & #3) or (#4 & #7) or (#5 and #7)

    I like 1 and 6

    2 diffrent flavors built off that classic design that will work with just about anything you throw at it.
