I was wondering if anyone in the DC/ Baltimore area would have a grace hanging kit for the 30cm stereo bar I could borrow/rent for this coming weekend? I have tried to purchase it at several places but no one has it in stock, including the company itself. The part number is SB-HB-30/66.
I would need it from Saturday to Tuesday, 22 Sept- 25 Sept.
I currently use a UA Solo 610, Focusrite ISA One and PreSonus Eureka in my studio.
These are all capable of different colors and all sound great.
However, all my pres are transformer type pres and apparently this adds something to the sound?
Because of this I'm tempted to get a clean/transparent sounding pre and have the possibility of picking up a secondhand Grace m101 .
From my experience of my pres I would say the Eureka in the most transparent/uncolored sounding pre of the bunch.
Which of these has the cleanest most transpartent and un colored sound?
The Grace m201 is $2,150. Two Grace 101s are $1,140. Other than a few obvious features like MS decoding, what is the difference. They say, "The Grace 101 uses the same fast, musical transimpedance amplifier architecture as the venerable Grace 801 and 201"... Where did the extra $1K go?
I am the proud new owner of a grace 101 pre and was reading up on it.
I came across this in a review by Bob Ross for Recording Magazine:
"Both the XLR and TRS jacks can feed
unbalanced sources, though Grace strongly recommends
using cables which leave pin 3 (or the ring) open to minimize
What are cables that leave pin three (Or the ring) open?
