    I'm happy to spend money for my gratest passion and I would buy something that satisfy me with amazing sound quality !

    So i need a quality
    sound card

    audio converter: RME? I think thay have grat products may be the ADI-8?

    Here is my rule of thumb and I'm a newbie so take what I say with a grain of salt......

    Don't blow a lot of money on a great mic to connect to a crappy preamp with a crappy cable. With audio gear I've noticed that you get what you pay for, but there are a few suprises to that rule (example: Shure SM57 is an $80 industry standard mic..you'd have a hard time finding a studio that doesn't at least consider using one per session)

    I'd start by getting a nice interface....the RME FireFace looks pretty nice and the word around here is that RME makes nice gear.

    My above post wasn't talking about the gear that you had listed.....it was a generalization. The mic and pre you listed are good....just didn't want it to seem like I called it crap.
