    Hi all. I just wanted some opinions on what pre(s) to look at...
    I want to buy one nice pre mainly for electic guitar and male rock vocals. I'd like to keep it around $1500, but cheaper is always better (duh). I'm going to be recording alt/rock/prog directly to a DAW using a MOTU running at 96k and 24bit. A little color would be nice I think...

    Any suggestions would be great. Thanks, guys...

    i would check out the sebatron vmp-2000e preamp.i picked one up a few months ago it made a huge difference.
    i think there are some examples posted on this site.

    Get a Great River ME1NV. About $1000 per chanel. Very big and agressive sound, lots of color options; great sounding D.I.

    Either of the above mentioned pres will be very nice at that price point.

    I would suggest you use the search engine for "mic pre" and spend a few hours reading and learning. Well worth the investment of time...
