    Has anyone heard these against one another?
    What are the sonic differences for pop vocal application ie.Celine Dion, Whitney, open singing?
    Thank you all.

    Yeah, I've tried both(I own a CIB) and they are different in their own way. Every vocalist is different(I've heard great recordings done a VT737 as the primary vocal preamp), You are also talking about a $2000 difference, so its not like straight trade situation. I own (2)9098EQ and a CIB, and what I love is the EQ. The compressor is cool also on the CIB and you can use it as 2 seperate channels(Line and mic). The build quality is first rate. IMO though I think Amek stuff is a little over priced.

    Thank you so much, by the way what recordings do you know of that were tracked with the 737 and have you heard it as compared to the 2022 mic pre?
    Thankx.
