If you are gonna get the BIG DADDY of 'em all, which really stands as #1 in your book? Lets talk single channel units... The GT ViPre is a single channel "damn near do it all" design. The Millennia STT-1 also a single channel design, is called the "All In One" recording system. The Sebatron Thorax is a single channel pre-amp and then some. I want to hear which one is #1 on your list guys! And it doesn't have to be any of the ones I listed above. Unless you... How bout' like $5000 or so.
