Undertone MEQP-1. Opinions? Dual-Channel Preamps

Undertone MEQP-1. Opinions?

I just became informed of this unit and wondering if anybody was using them & what your opinions are. I was looking at more of a Chandler TG2 channel strip, but just wondering how this might compare. Does the Eq sound "colorful"? Just any input would be really helpful

I've owned the MPEQ-1, The TG2, and the TG Channel, and they are all great units. I personally preferred the TG2 preamp to the one in the TG Channel, and the MPEQ-1 is perhaps more USA sounding, and is so smooth and even you might think it was a tube amp -- and is a tad darker in comparison to the TG -- at least first version of the MPEQ-1 w/ the larger transformer. I preferred the EQ on the UTA, but they are both excellent. I did not find the MPEQ EQ to be overtly colored. Certainly the pre is less colored than the TG2.

Thanks! Any other users or just general opinions on the unit?

hate to bump this thread but I'm also looking at the two units, esp now with the TG cassette.
