05 I didn't like at all, it sounded s if something was wrong within the upper midrange.
Interesting! Do you want me to PM the results?

Hey OverThe Top,
So what did you do with the WA-12, do you still have it or is it gone ?

I took the test a while ago but i'd like to know, is your WA-12 the half rack version or the 500 series ?
Do you plan on doing another shootout with the tone engaged on both the WA-12 and WA-412 ?
I know it must be a lot of work but if you could do it, that would be awesome !

I've kept the WA-12 for when I need another preamp (the occasional drum recording), otherwise I'm just using the WA-412 out of convenience.
Althought most people in this thread/poll seem to prefer the WA-12 to the WA-412.

I have no plans for such a shootout, but can do so when/if I find the time.

I'm seriously considering the WA-12 500, in fact i'm considering going the 500 series route for the first time thanks to Cranborne Audio's 500ADAT...
Thanks for your answer !

I just found this thread and I liked 6 the best. 6-3-5-2 in that order. I’m looking at the wa412 and can’t find any good comparison clips. Can you pm the results?

Thanks!

Preamp shoot out Result

Hi all

I am new here and I am new to the music scene. I like 03 as it is most rounded, next is 05 slightly less bottom end, then 02 which is least amount of bottom end but quite clean so can be compensated in post. 06 is good too but a bit muddy. Then again, I’m new so...

Please pm me the result of which belongs to which

So over a year later - can we publicly post the results now?

By request, I've decided to finally inform that:
Preamp #2 is the Really Nice Preamp
Preamp #3 is the Warm Audio WA12
Preamp #5 is the RME Fireface 400
Preamp #6 is the Warm Audio WA412

Also, you can count the "votes" by placing three points for the fav preamp, two points for the next fav, and one point för the third.
By doing so, you end up with the following scores:

Warm Audio WA12 (#3) 57 points
Warm Audio WA412 (#6) 42 points
RME Fireface 400 (#5) 24 points
Really Nice Preamp (#2) 20 points

Please realize that this is by no means a scientific test, it's just for fun.

I have not read the results yet. 3 is my favourite. 6 sounds like it maybe the RME.
