Seventh Circle Audio Pres vs. ???
This summer I'm planning on buying some equipment from Seventh Circle Audio- the chassis, PSU, harness, and a pair of pres. This will probably end up costing around $1000, and over the next year I plan on adding preamp modules as I have the money.
I was just wondering if, in this $1000+ if there is a better/different option? I'm happy to do the SCA kit and would enjoy building some pres, but I wasn't sure if there was anything comparable or of equal quality at that price.
Also, if anyone has one of these SCA pres- what modules do you recommend? I record retro inspired folk and indie rock type music, and would like a pair of pres that are very versatile, at least to start. A bit of character would be nice though.
Thanks for your help,
