I`ve been reading up one a lot of the topics conserning preamps / Microphones. One thing strikes me: It seems there is a general agrement on the fact that the microphone itself has the biggest influnce on the sound in a signalchain.. So.. cashing out 3K for a Neve.. Is it really worth the money?? Ok.. before everybody jumps me and start hitting (I know Neve has a God-like position in the world of recording) let me just explain what I meant by that sentence. I was just thinking that maybe (MAYBE..) it would be just as good to get a decent preamp for, lets say 1/3 of price of a Neve, and instead spend more money on a GREAT Mic.. (like a C-800G or something) Actually.. To be honest, I dont know what I`m rambling on about here. The fact is I REALLY REALLY REALLY want a Neve. Even though its a lot of money.. I guess all I want from you is to, as the topic states, convince me to buy a Neve. I`m this close to buying one. I`m standing on the edge, someone please push me.. By the way.. I seem to be leaning towards the 1073DPA. Is that a good choice?
