RME Fireface 800 pres or Golden Age Projects Pre-73
Any of you out there have any experience with both of these pres?
I have the ff800, and I'm not that crazy about the preamps. I am thinking about getting a pre-73 to chain to the ff800, as a low cost alternative for now. I heard good things about the pre-73 so I might want to get one , for bass guitar, acoustic guitar, and perscusions. I only do single track recording. The ff800 preamps sound thin and almost lifeless. hate to say it that way. I like my ff800 as a whole, but the pres compared to my previous UA solo 610, or even my previous transparent Grace M101 (both sound in a different class), that's the way I have to describe it.
Another alternative I am thinking about is getting the BLA mod for my ff800, anyone want to give me some feedback on my best alternative here? I want to spend around $500.00 for now.
