Well, I recently had the TLAudio 5051 Ivory II mic pre/EQ/compressor borrowed, i really liked it but i thought i would hear someone else's thoughts about it and what else in it's price range would be considerable compared to the 5051. I looked a little at the VoiceMaster Pro and the DBX 3** one channel pre. What else are found in this category? TFPro? The price is 1000€ and under (for one channel/mono) Thanks!
