    Has anyone had the opportunity to compare the Electro Harmonix 12AY7 vs. the ART MPA GOLD(non digital)?
    I'm trying to decide between the two and I'm having a tough time at it. I've been hearing nothing but rave reviews about the EH 12AY7, but would the MPA Gold be just as good or better if it were given a tube upgrade?
    I like the features of the MPA because its 2 channels, rackable, and has adjustable impedance settings for my ribbon mics. I'm a bit warry of ART products in general, and I'm most likely to go for the EH if
    the sonic quality is drastically better.

    Any input would be appreciated.
