    Hi all,

    I'm looking to upgrade my vocal signal path. Right now I'm working with a AT3050 going into my Omni Studio Pre, then on to a RNC then to the Delta66 Converters, into Logic.

    I want to upgrade the whole path but there are too many choices out there and I'm a Libra.

    I think I'm gonna go with a C1, I've heard a lot of good about it. I think it'll complement my AT3050, and give me a different flavor.

    Now here's the hard part. I'm considering three options, all around the same price point.

    1. FMR RNC, Lucid AD9624
    2. Grace Lunatec V3
    3. Apogee Mini-Me

    Option 1 will allow me to continue using my RNC, but the others won't. Grace is known for their pre's, and the converters are 192kHz rated, future proofed! (and in a review I read, the converters got high marks) But Apogee is known for their converters (and it has a comp-limiter). However I'm not too sure about the Apogee pre's or DI, the reviews I read kinda focused on the converters and other features.

    The RNP, OTOH is really well regarded for its pre's and DI, and I've heard good things about the Lucid.

    Please help me make the right choice. I know any of the options above will blow away my current setup, but which one would you guys recommend?
