8 channel Mic Pre

i've heard the Focusrite Octopre is great...but the PreSonus Digimax looks good.

I really just need the MicPre's. the digital converters are nice...but just an extra. so you descide!

Focusrite Octopre (can't find a dealer, or price)
PreSonus Digimax $1299.00
PreSonus M80 $1799.00
ARX 8-Pre $650.00

I need the balanced I/O and a PAD switch. thats the requirements. i don't think the Focusrite fits. so scratch doesn't have a PAD, and requires that i buy a 25 pin d-sub to XLR or TRS snake. .

The pres your looking at are descent but certainly nothing special. For the same cost, you could get a 4 channel Sytek with significantly better pres.
Your much better off with something like a Mackie board and one or two really nice pres like an Earthworks.
For example, you could pick-up a 1402VLZpro and a LAB101 for not much more $$$ and you'll have a far more professional set-up.
