Yes i love the am6/17 on vocals and it glued the drums very nice.

The audix is the same as the calrec, because of the am6/17 board inside.

This one is really A+

I have myself a sta level, la2a, 1968 and a joemeek sc2

It's a BBC design. It's a delay line limiter. It's the bees knees on vocals and other stuff as long as it's working to spec. Clean-ish. Schematics are available online if you look.

AFAIK there are versions by the BBC itself, Audix and Calrec. I don't know if anyone else (Neve?) made them but all iterations would be very high quality as they were being made for (and closely inspected by) the BBC .
