    Im looking for a real god 4-8ch micpreamp, for pipeorgan and
    thousand's of people in a large church.

    It's a event that will be recorded 4-5 times each year.
    And i will have the best equipment i can have. :lol:

    Is the Millennia Media HV-3B the best or is there any other
    micpreamp who is more praiseworthy, and sounds equal.

    The HV-3 is very fine, but I really think the D.A.V Broadhurst Gardens is more musical (the MM HV-3 series is far to analytical for my ears). I've been using BG 1's & 2's on organ for several years with great succes! (FWIW; they mate very well with Neumann mikes!)

    I'm sure that there are other p-amps that will perform equally fine..

    A Grace 801 would work quite nicely for that application. Schoeps or DPA mics would be worth looking at.

    If money were no option, I would get a set of Groove Tubes ViPRE's or some other tube pre with variable transformer impedance.

    DPA mics are something special. Just amazing for acoustic music apps.

    We just bought more DAV Electronics mic amps. They are fantastic for all acoustic sources.


    BG#1 is a 2 channel mic amp
    BG#2 is a 4 channel mic amp.

    Easily as good as anything costing 10 times as much.
    I agree with the poster above---MUCH more flattering than the technically correct, but sterile Millennia.

    These are some of the best mic amps available and they are reasonably priced.

    BG#1 $650 including shipping to USA or your country
    BG#2 $ 1450.00 including shipping

    Jump on it!

    I'm a broken record on this subject, but they're THAT GOOD!
