Hi there,

I know it is not for sale anymore but is a very highly sought after and apparently pure sounding mic preamp.
How do they sound compared to the original MP-2?

To the best of my memories, these particular preamps were designed as clones, as close as clones can get, to a class A Neve preamp similar to the 1073 preamp section. And so I gave you all those transformers that has a great deal to do with its character. It's not your only choice. Full-bodied fully colored. Transparent? Hardly.

You are correct. (Well, I don't know about "noise rejection" but yes the MP-2NV is the Neve clone.)

The original MP-2 was more neutral, less (for lack of a better word) "hairy" than the MP-2NV.
