Thank you so much for chiming in Gregory. I think your answer is in part why I'm stuck on this. The truth is I want both and I want them now (que song) but It's looking like I'll have to buy them staggered.
On the ubk side, the Fatso/Clariphonic just looks like so much fun. I fantasize about driving around with them in the passenger seat of a convertible while honey drips out of the car stereo....
On the neve side, I think critically on the possibility of clamping onto the arteries of my mixes while they lay open on a steel operating table, with bright lights shining silkily in the background....
Ok, maybe that is all a bit much but I'm suffering from a serious case of gear acquisition syndrome.
I have till the end of December to make my final decision. Time will tell. Maybe I'll be able to eat raman till then and buy both!
Thanks for all of the input
