    What standalone Pre would be a step up from the Tac pre's ?

    The pre's in the Tac have made me more then happy but I would like to have some other flavor of pre to choose from.

    I would be using the pre mainly for vocals.

    I would think of a valve preamp like a sebatron or a D.W.Fearn.
    the Fearn stuff is expensive but worth every cent.i tracked a whole album through a VT-2 once and BOY did that thing have a sound.
    WHat sort of microphones would you be using for the vocal chain?

    Would something like the brick be a worthy step up ?
    I kind of think of the brick as different but not really a step up.
    Am I wrong in thinking this ?

    I would like to stay around $500 per channel.

    I will be adding to my mic arsenal also.
