Sebatron vmp-2000e OR A-Designs MP1
http://sebatron.com/products.html
http://www.adesignsaudio.com/mp_1.html

i've known the vmp's to be very clean great sounding pres.. but i've been doing some research on the mp1, and some have called it the best pre under $1000

even $850 is pushing my budget but i'm trying to get something that i won't have to upgrade from for a long time..
mics i use:
U87ai(partners)
TLM193(mine)
SE5500(on the way)

i mainly record r&b artist and hiphop artist. right now i'm tracking with the TLM193 through a Valley audio 401 mic processor.. it sounds good.. a little thin, but good.. but i know i can get better..
which of the 2 pre's would you take in my shoes..or if you have another pre in mind let me know please

There are reviews of both these pres in the RO E Mag. [="http://www.recording.org/e-mag/article_90.shtml"]Sebatron VMP 4000[/]

[="http://www.recording.org/e-mag/article_88.shtml"]A Designs MP-2[/]

I do not have any audio samples of the A Designs piece but you can hear the Sebatron in use in the Mic Pre comparisons posted in the Audio Projects Streaming page..

I have to confess that the first time I looked at the title of this thread I thought of someting like:
Should I marry or stay single? ( hard choice, help me choose..)

Bad joke
