    I'm not sure what 2000 Euros will convert to in USD ... but for $2200 USD you can get a JLM TMP8.

    I have recently recieved one (of the new version) of this mic pre manufactured in Austrilia by JLM . The TMP is a transformer, op amp based solid state pre built around the same approach as APIs and Focusrite "Red Range" pres.

    I did a complete album with a punk band and I was (and am still) very impressed with the sound of it on drums. The kick and snare tones are some of the best I have ever gotton (with my drums). The TMP8 has defeatable soft limiters on each channel that allow you to really push the pres for a Neve type sound. I highly recommmend these pres to everyone. At 2200 for 8 channels, the TMP8 weighs in as one of the most affordable (on a per channel basis) mic pres around.

    The D&R would be of intrest IMO. I can't remeber exactly what they sound like (it's been a long time since I heard or used them) but I seem to remember them as clean and colorless and that company has a good rep in the pro audio community. I think these are manufactured in The Netherlands where the general consensus seems to be biased towards the "transparent" type of pre.
