    Warm Audio WA2A vs UA LA2A

    Please share any comparisons you've done between the UA LA-2A and Warm Audio WA-2A seen below. Looking at the guts of the WA-2A, it looks pretty clean, not exactly the same as the originals but it appears to all be there. I wonder how it sounds? Compares?

    Your opinions on fidelity

    I'm doing a few tests to see what sounds better. In your opinion which do you like better fidelity wise. It's not an exact test as it's not the same performance , just looking for opinions on which sounds better.

    Anyone compare the Lynx Aroura 16 to Echo AudioFire 12?

    The prices are spectacularly different, but what about the quality. I'm sure the Lynx is great, but I've only heard one comment about the Echo which was very complimentary. Anyone out who has used both?

    Beta58 compared to SM58 for snare top etc...

    firepod preamps compared to yamaha o1v pres?

    Has anyone compared either? I might be able to borrow my friend's 01V for some sessions, but I'm not sure if it's even worth trying. I've heard the pres are thin sounding, but I can't imagine them being worse than the firepod's pres. Any advice would be appreciated! Thanks, C
