CRane Song Flamingo or HEDD?
Does anyone here have any experience with CRane Song's equipment, particularly the Flamingo and HEDD 192? I can't find a soul in the great ::cough:: state of New Hampshire that has a unit to try out. Anyone know how they compare to GML, Avalon, etc.? Thanks!

I can't say enough good things about Crane Song gear. I have used everything but the Spider and all of Dave Hill's gear has a uniformly high class sound. The Hedd and STC-8 are particular faves of mine. The Flamingo and Trakker are also amazing.
I have a Flamingo and a 2022. The CSF can have a bit more of an attitude and the 2022 is transparent. Use 'em both all the time. The CSF can be transparent as well. The 2022 has an impedence switch which changes the sound of my older U87. Glad I've got 'em both :)
Digitmus... I am mostly curious as to how the Flamingo compares to other world-class preamps as far as sound quality and flexibility. I need something really versatile that'll give me the big sound of ultra-high-end studios.
