    Just looking to fill out the racks with some new pre's. Been looking at API 4 channel, UA 2-610, OSA lunchbox or possibly the True Prescison 8. My only other nice pre is a MP2NV at the moent. Ever heard one of these things? If so please elaborate.....thanks.

    I've used it a few times at my old workplace. To sum it up:
    Clean, uncolored, transparent, shallow.
    No GR pad which makes it odd for tracking drums.

    Not a bad pre overall, but I would never buy one, personally.

    Its been of much use to us. Great clean, crisp sound... if that's what you're looking for...

    I just took the plunge on one of these babies. I love it. Someone above used the term "shallow." I can't imagine what they were listening to. Yes, they are ultra clean, but the bass is quite meaty (in that still transparent sense) and the soundstage is as big and accurate as any pre I've ever heard.

    True, no pad, but they make in-line pads for that. The signal path is short, sweet and to the point.

    BTW - there are 2 simultaneous outputs on each channel. Great for tracking and monitoring at the same time or two seperate mixes.

    You can hear a shootout posted at my website between some pre's including the the TRUE Systems Precision 8 I think a difference can especially be heard on the Hydro Porcelan samples.
