I've been reading great things about these. Has anyone used them? I'm also considering Brent Averill Neve 1272s or the Great River Mercenary Audio (can't recall model #)Any comments or suggestions. Thanks.

Well the DRS-2 has a rather different sonic character from either of those... the input is transformerless, but the tone is quite opulent.

I have found it to be exceptionally complementary with my Great River MP-2NV... the two tones just blend together like a good holandaise sause...

As always, YMMV.

I've got one, and am very very happy with it. I haven't had the chance to compare it to either of the pres you're talking about, but compared to any of the Focusrites or a couple of Neve "clones" .. plus a few other things .. I prefer it by far. Very rich, nice extended top. A modern pre that doesn't lose the best of the old. IMHO of course.
