Crystalll clear but warm sharp sound
Kirschner, 19.07.2018
I simply love it on acoustic guitar , overheads, any kinda percussion stereo is my best gear
I send it's voice through an smc2b wich helps a lot more but without that this gear is great too.

Look is ok, but for me it is beautiful - I find beautiful all my gear wich works nicely - even my smc2b :D

Big big headroom, nice voicing, very small noise, very clear and accurate sound, very good transient handling I wish I have not the twin but the 4 channel version

No cons only pro-s

A must have and the price tag is also super, it worth much more.

Punchy sounds and useful features.
slimcadie1, 13.02.2019
This is just great on drums and acoustic guitars. Punchy, warm, clear and a dark "weight" down below. It's not THAT coloured, so you can use it on anything with good results. For stereo micing it's great to have the stepped gain knobs, phase switches etc. There is plenty of gain, the 3 impedance options are sometimes useful, as is the HP filter knob. I have two of them in regular use with no issues whatsoever.

both "defined" and "warm"
Astromancer, 11.05.2020
What a lot of us want from a pre is two sometimes conflicting things, it has to be "defined" and "warm" at the same time. This pre is good for vox and acoustic guitars, with a detailed, "silky" high, and warm mids. Very interesting are the variable impedance settings. It pairs very well with Neumann TLM 102 and KM184 and Rode K2 I have experienced. And you get the free plugin for the rest of the ISA 110 table when you register. In this price bracket it is probably one of the best. If you are looking for "lots of Neve coloration", then you are probably better of with WARM or GAP, but I don't own these units.

Sweet sweet sweet
23.10.2016
You cannot go wrong with this piece, I love to drive my synths through its instrument inputs. Got one earlier, had to sell it, but then I decided to purchase one again it was so indispensable. Tons of mid detail and colour, but in a less beefy way, somehow dryer than the 1073. Great for vocals and for acoustic instruments with the amazing LP filter function. Love to be able to switch inserts in and out of the signal chain with a touch of a button.
