BAE preamps - how reliable?

I've been rockin' a pair of GR ME1-NVs for over a decade with not a single issue, and I have a Phoenix DRS-2 that is about 12 years old as well. I've had to replace the TF1 output stages a few times in that unit, but it still sounds amazing.

I'm looking at the BAE 1073 MPF and was wanting to know how reliable and stable these units are. Will they give me a decade of trouble free use, and if there is an issue, how is BAE for support and service?

I've got two BAE312 preamps for over a decade: 100% reliable.

I have been selling Great River preamps for close to a decade and I have never seen any problems with them. Its a testament to Dan. He really cares and is one hellava guy. Especially when it comes to customer support.

BAE = Outstanding build quality and sound, without the fun issues of vintage modules.
