After searching through pounds of literature over a period of one month in search of a pre-amp that fits my need. I finally made my decision and purchased the Sebatron vmp-2000e from Dan of Watts-Up-Audio. I have to say this was the best decision I made. The first night I trialed, I realized I'm in a new league. Before I used the pre-amps on my Roland VS880 ex, Makie 1202 and a Bellari MP110. Obviously not much of a comparison, but wow! Whats funny is that I ran across several posts that talked about false posts and marketing gimics, this almost stopped me from purchasing but I did anyway. I don't think I'll be looking back. I want to recognize Dan for his honest approach to resolving a shipping issue and Sebatron for his willingness to answer my inquiries within a very quick manner. I did not get this kind of results from other suppliers. If you're in the market for a two channel pre with a healthy range of sounds, check the Sebatron VMP-2000e out.
