    What to replace? Your expectations? Your technique? This is not a question this is more like an exorcism. You have ghosts you cannot see, who ya gonna call?

    You can replace all this gear with another set of equal gear, what happens then? What is it that you are trying to do that you cannot do?

    Maybe stating what it is that is so corrupt in your recordings that makes you think replacing all this gear would help you to better understand your anxiety.

    It is anxiety isn't it?

    What's good? All of it.

    What sucks? Getting rid of it.

    What now? If at first you don't succeed? Take two.

    What next? Take three.

    Are you there? Take off!

    Ground control to Major Tom?

    My only advice would be to bag the DIs and get a better one. You will find limitations really quickly with those B*****'s

    Do you need 2? Try Radial Engineering DIs. They're fantastic and reasonably priced. They're good at everything (notice "good" - not perfect, but very good) and bad at nothing.

    @Cucco: I said that last time this was posted.
    Although I think I mentioned JBLs then later realised they make speakers :S

    If you haven't bought any of that yet I would invest more in monitors then you are. Even if you have the greatest MICS, preamps, and converters in the world if you can't hear them then what good will they do you. There is an great thread on here about what to spend on monitors if you do a search.

    Check out the Audio Technica 37R for overheads. I haven't heard the Sure SM94, but I do love the AT 37R.

    For monitors even if you aren't mixing dance music get an 8 inch woofer. I like my Event TR8's, but even though they are 40-20k, the bass isn't really usable until about 60Hz, and that's an 8"!

    On the DI boxes, you have some good gear listed there. Don't ruin it with cheep DI boxes.
