Hi, I have an opportunity to purchase a used Millennia Origin from a local studio. I have lusted for one of those puppies for the longest time, the guy is asking $2200, which isn't too far out there from what I've seen on flea-Bay. I want to use it for VO work and have been looking at a used UA 6176 ($1800, same dude), as well. I have read that the 6176 seems to have a rep for being 'dark' on male voices, and at the same time I've read where VO folks LOVE the Avalon VT-737sp in that application. I used to have an early version of the 737 (with the purple knobs!) and was not happy with the reliability, the sloppy compressor, or the intermittent "spitting" that the box tended to generate, so out it went. But maybe that was premature. So my question is...what experience(s) have you had with these (3) boxes? Whichever one I choose, it will have to do double duty as a decent channel strip for tracking music -mainly singers, guitar amps, etc. Whatever I get will have to deal with different mics - I just acquired a lovely Sennheiser MD441 (I really like that mic on my voice), but I also have a U87, SM7b, RE-20, Beyer ribbons, and several others. Another option would be the Empirical Mic-E channel, but I can't find any user reviews or commentary on that box. Any input would be greatly appreciated.
