UA 610.

Pair it up with a 670 and you got thee fattest, realist, most bad ass tone known to man and dog.

Ha! Lol. I’ve been craving a 610 but every time I read GS I get convinced to pass on it with all the wooly blanket comments. I should just trust my gut and get one. I bet I’ll like it a lot. Thx for the nod!

Yeh but before you get a UA 610, you gotta find a UA 610 :-)

I don't know if this one was mentioned but I love the Buzz Audio MA 2.2. Huge sound and one of the fastest preamps out there:

Let's say I'm the old guy asking the young kid what the latest music is that the kids are listening to.....we are slutz after all, so why not buy because it's cool right? lol...
Edit: By digging into this topic more, I'm hoping we could also discuss some great independent manufacturers who make high quality items that are off the chain as well as the not so discussed vintage pieces that are amazing!

must admit i never tried the 610 console or vintage racked units, but the currently made 610 sounds to me a bit blurry and lacks definition. Not versatille at all. Would love to try the vintage ones
