    just wondering how you guys get equipment for review. i'm just a small personal project studio and i'm thinking my only option is to go out and buy each unit i'm thinking about (making sure wherever I buy from has a good return policy) and returning what I don't like. ideally, i'd like to get 2 or 3 mic pre's for example (for a couple days) and compare them, but i don't have the money to buy 2 or 3 units at once.

    what does everyone else do? do you guys have 'contacts' with local distributors, retailers?

    A generous return policy and a good credit card will do. Charge up three pre's, and return two before you're billed.

    Build a relationship with a local Pro Audio Dealer. A lot of dealers have demo gear that you can try out for a week at no charge, and then you can pick the piece that you like the best. On occasion they might even sell you the piece at a discount.
