Time to buy a nice pre. Looking for a better front end channel into that lowly beast of workstations, a 001. My only other pres are those in my 01V. I began looking at an RNP, coupled with either two RNC's, or a dbx dual channel compressor such as a 166. But now I've decided to go a little more high end and am seriously considering this one, with the optional S/PDIF digital card. Any first hand users here? I've seen them fairly often in studio equipment lists, but would like to hear some opinions on it. I know asking a question like this always seems to open up the door for lots of opinions on other pre's, but I'm specifically interested in opinions on this one at the moment.
