Rupert Neve Designs Portico 5012
Got it for 6 months now.
* accoustic stereo recording (with beyerdynamic MC930s) on accoustic guitar.
* voice recording (with U87 and SM7b)
Fit really well my needs.
No problem with external power supply :
* if fails one day, just replace it
* No power supply near mic signal flow
Really Great product !!
