I have tried several Pre's around the $500 price range however the noise floor and transparency of these units usually turns out to be fairly disappointing therefore I decided to move up to the next price range level and I'm very glad I did. No this is not a Neve 1073 but I am very happy indeed that I chose the Black Lion B173, it has a low noise floor and no real coloration to speak of. I would like to have seen an XLR out instead of the 1/4" jack but hey I can live with that! Overall, very happy indeed.
