AVALON M5 w/Jensen Transformers

Member for

Anyone ever compare the stock M5 with the one outfitted with Jensen Transformers? I used to have one of the latter, but it got completely destroyed. I recently got a standard one (without the Jensen transformers) and I can't help but feeling the like the jensen model sounded a bit brighter and bigger. Also, how much does it cost to get a standard m5 outfitted to include the jensens?

To record my wife, and also record (pass through) the spidif from triton to DAW

Below are my choices and my understanding of different things from what I have read. Please let me know if my understanding is correct or if there are other issues I need to be aware of...

I already have the 4050 but am looking at getting the other 2, they are the edge of my prioce range 3K so icannot go any higher.

however i only really need 2 inputs (stereo from my triton) to go into my MAC/cubase

these were recommended to me from my sweetwater rep

I have to sell my 2480 and 410 to afford it and hate giving those up, but i have made the decision to commit to my MAC investment and stop futzing between my 2 recording set ups
