Hi All, Apple iMac (Leopard) Intel Core 2 Duo 2.4Ghz Apogee Duet Cubase 4.0 Sibelius 5.0 Kontakt 2.0 Guitar Rig 2.0 KRK V6 Series 2 I have just purchased an Apogee Duet. The converters will blow your mind for the price of the unit but the preamps are a little weak. Can anyone tell me at what price/make of preamp I would notice an improvement over the Apogee preamps? I prefer a good clear clean sound not too warm. My budget would be around $1000.00 and I would prefer to buy new. Thank you for your help. Kindest regards, Martin.
