Hi, I am in the market for some ultra clean/transparent mic pres. I currently own enough high end 'colored' mic pres and have been doing some research on some 'transparent' channels. The usual list of course applies i.e. Grace, John Hardy, Millennia, GML etc... I recently came across a brand called Sytek which appears to have a nice cross section of price and performance. The only problem is I don't know anyone that owns them and the stores in my area don't sell them (they appear to sell direct). So I am looking to all the gear snobs out there (yes you to Kurt) to let me know if I should bother trying to audtion one of these things (MPx-4Aii) or just stick with the names I have mentioned above. Also I would be happy to hear any other suggestions, based on what I am looking for, from the group, thanks.
