  1. Well SP is at it again, although they seem to be touting Burr Brown IC's, and having never really looked into mic pre's untill now I don't know if they are quality, this is from the sit


    What do you guys think?

    the buzz around here when SP had its forum was that it would be comparable to the sytek- so far no one has posted a comparison- if it had adat optical outs I would buy one, as this would give me 8 extra inputs via adat on my 828 mkii- unfortunately this is not the case...

    Hi maintiger,
    as for 8 Adat for the 828mkII, you might look into the Behringer. Yes, I know it is a swearword, but in this case I´m actually positively surprised. The preamps are actually much better than expected and the AD as well. Might mention that I do mostly acoustical music. (Classical and big band). Have had good experiences with transformerless condensors, not quite as good with dynamic mics.

    I have heard the behringer- a friend of mine brought it over and like you said, we were positively surprised. I haven't needed more than the 12 inputs I currently used in my 828 mkii (2 via spdif, 2 w/ built in pres, 8 analog)
    but like you say, it is definitely useable. i suspect that the SP mic pre would be better but like I said, I haven't heard it yet. I do own a sytek though and the sytek is way way better than the behringer- we did do a comparison when we had it in the studio. In fact, even a yamaha mla7 beats the behringer- though not by much, and that was the surprise.
