Hey- any word on the quality of the mic pre amps on this baby? Thinking about buying a couple Rode NT1's or one NT2 (or maybe the NT 1000, or NTK) Or who knows what kind of Mic! I'm going down to Boston tomorrow to check out Mic's for myself. Can only read so many reviews before saying, Damnit!- you want something done, you gotta hear it for yourself! But back to the subject. Comments about the MOTU 828, or mic suggestions would be appreciated as well. I will send benevolent blessings throught Astral planes and the Force to all who answer!
