I am looking to buy some transparent mic pres and am considering the Sytek. I've read that Aerosmith (big deal) and the Seattle, Chicago and somewhere else orchestras bought them. Would I be better off saving for something like a millennia 2-channel? Keep in mind that the Sytek is 4 months salary and the Millennia is 8 months salary. I'm really only interested in opinions of people who are very familiar (have actually heard and worked) with both these units. Thanks a million. Wilding.
