Hope this is the correct group to post this question to, but I'm in a bit of a bind. Just recently lost all my recording equipment (microtech gefell m200 pair into a tascam hd-p2 oade mod), and i need to quickly replace it all. I bought my mics over a decade ago and love them, so i'm planning on replacing with as close a match as i can find and afford (my they are pricey),, I was planning on trying to spend a bit more on the mic pre with the hope i could go into a cheaper recorder than the tascam hd-p2. Does anyone have thoughts on running through the sound devices 2 channel pre into something like one of the $600 range marantz units. I mostly record loud live sound, but also more quiet acoustic stuff.
