SPL Channel One

Has anyone had any experience with this preamp? This will be my first preamp purchase, (used for main vocals) and it sounded great in the shop. I've tried the AMEK CIB, AU6176, and they seem to sound superior on some material, but not like double the price better. Is anyone using an SPL Channel One and able to comment/ I'd appreciate your input.

I own a pair of the AMEK CIB but bought and mostly use it just for the eq. Have not heard any of the SPL stuff but if you think it is as good as the CIB which I know to be a great mic pre and overall unit, then it is likely to be a good unit for you. The UA 6176 is on my to buy list and having the 1176 comp which is one fo the most sought after comps ever made gives 6176 high value for use on may tasks.
