I don't hear much talk about the Universal Audio Mic Pres on this forum much. Many people use UA products like the 1176, La2a etc. I use the M610 and have a 2108 on the way. My friend has a 2108 and I think it sounds amazing with a studio Projects C3. Are there just plain better pres for the $.? I got a smoking deal on this unit new and will cash in on the $100 rebate as well.
