I have a few more gigs lined up and should be able to expand my mic pre selection in the near future. Currently I have 2 Portico 5012’s, a Aphex 107 (slightly modified) and a heavily modified ART tube PAC. I will be able to test out my top 3 choices, but in order to narrow the field I would appreciate the input of people actually using the gear. I want to purchase 8 channels of transparent pre-amps, and one flavored 2-4 channel pre. I am liking the following for more transparent pre’s: Millennia HV-3D True Precision 8 Buzz Audio MA2.2 Earthworks 1024 Sytek MPX-4Aii I also like the looks of the following: Cranesong Flamingo API 3124 If you have any of the above I would love to hear your thoughts on the gear.
