    The Great River is still the right choice.

    At 20 bits, you are on the verge of dynamic range covering fly-farts-at-20-feet to untolerable pain. Really, what more could we need?

    I just saw this quote on their site and thought someone might have an opinion about its accuracy.

    ...perhaps on the question, if You ever encountered a situation, where You really did not process a lead vocal when tracking and mixing a song!? Anybody had this and when / where, which style of music...
    I often do classical music, where I don't compress and EQ at all. But how about pop music - anybody tried to do it the very vintage way without EQ, today?

    Anyone have any idea what one of these babies costs? Most of the other AMS Neve stuff is priced right out of my range.Hope they are competing with the Great River, Buzz Audio. Pendulum etc.price wise. I still love my MP2nv but I've always wanted to get some of that "Neve Magic".

    Well...

    Of the people in the room who were listening at the Preamp Summit (24 preamps-same sources), most of us agreed that we liked the sound of the MP-2NV to the sound of the 1073. We compared them side by side. You can ask John Wheeler, who was there, or Michael Wagener. I consider that between us we have some pretty good ears, and we all agreed that while the 1073s had a "sound," it was really not as good a "sound" as the same source material through the NVs.

    Considering that you can buy a stereo NV and the stereo NV EQ for just a little more than the recreation mono 1073, I would say that the NV is the better choice.

    Of course, spending that extra $5K will get you "Neve" bragging rights. You can't get that with any other preamps.
