    Hi there,

    I wanted to record my wife's vocals. Just got the Neumann 103, and wanted to match it with a good pre. I'm getting fireface which I've heard has good AD/DA converters, but their pre's not that so great.

    So, What do you guys think? My budget is around 1500, maybe $2000 max. I've heard both good and bad things about 737's, but so far only good things from M5's, but wanted to ask..


    Also, how about the blue robbie as a pre?

    Any other pre's for the price?

    Thanks so much.

    Maz

    Hmm...why avalon??

    Considering the mic, I would say you'd want to go with a bigger, fuller pre to help tame the edginess inherint in the 103.

    I would say -
    Manley
    Summit
    API
    Brent Averil
    OSA

    something along those lines.
