To make things short, I'm building somewhat of a monster of a home studio. I've been trying to ferret out the best preamp selections possible for my price range, and heres what I've come up with. I'm looking for about 24 channels of preamps, budget is about $25k For the completely transparent side, and my main source of preamps, I was looking at 2 Grace m801s. That gives me 16 channels of pristine, clear preamps for anything I need them for. For the colored, not so clear side, I was looking at the following - UA LA-610 Drawmer 1969 Great River MEQ-1NV UA 6176 Focusrite Liquid Channel Vintech X73i GT SuPRE Thoughts? Things I could swap out with equivelants and save cash? Is this a good balance of clear/colored preamps? Thanks!
