I don't mean to be a pest with all my questions, but I really appreciate all the great/useful answers I have received from you all recently! I am starting to record audio books. I have a PR40 and a laptop and a very good sound room ready to go. From other users' comments, I now know that I need to get a good preamp for my recordings. My budget is around $900-$1000, but spending a lot less would be great too, but I'm really looking for quality (exceptionally low noise, etc.). Any suggestions? What preamps are best for my fairly uncomplicated recordings that would get the crystal clear sound into my recorder that I'm seeking? Thanks again in advance!
