    A lot of people have.....I have a unit being sent to me to demo along with the True Tape emulator and the compressor.

    Some people that are used to the old Neve stuff were a little less than impressed because it doesn't sound like the old Neve gear, and that is what they expected. Rupert said himself that it is NOT designed to replace old Neve stuff...it's an entirely different product.

    That said I've been told that it still has a lot of mojo and can go from clean to colored at the flip of the "silk" switch.

    Once some people stopped trying to compare it to their 1073 they found that they have a great pre at an awesome cost with a "buzz name" on it that will attract clients!

    I'll give my own opinions once it arrives.
