Mic Pre DI Comparison BAE, Chandler Ltd, Aurora GTQ and Countryman


I made a quick DI test with following Pres: BAE 1073 MP, Chandler LTD, Aurora GTQ and a Countryman into the GTQ and Countryman direct into the Apogee IO Line and gained via variable gain in Maestro so I could get a clean DI without Pre coloration.
I think its very interesting because there are big differences in the DI which show the flavor of each Preamp more drastically.
Hope you ll find it helpfull

1. BAE DI->Apogee IO
2. Chandler DI->Apogee IO
3. GTQ DI->Apogee IO
4. Countryman direct into Apogee IO
5. Countryman ->GTQ->Apogee IO

Thanks for the simple and revealing test.
I prefer the sound of the di going into the pre. I know my Bae and Chandler di's suck, compared to my passive radial going into the mic in of either of them.
