UA 2-610 vs Fearn VT-2 vs Groove Tubes SuPRE or Vipre

Would love to hear some comparisons between these pres - thanks. I've heard the 2-610 but not the others - how do the others compare to the 2-610 in terms of color / character and overall sonic performance?

-UA 2-610

-Fearn VT-2

-Groove Tubes SuPRE or Vipre

I can only vouch for the VIPRE. it is (IMHO) more versatile than the UA pre. The variable impedance is nice, and i LOVE being able to adjust the rise time. in addition to being great for mic'ing up vocals, guitar cabs, or whatever, it makes a sweet DI box. I combined a line 6 pod pro and the vipre together and it was absolutely 100% better sounding than the pod on its own. I was able to get a really fat, rich tone that blew me away. all in all, pretty versatile.

The Vipre is a brilliant piece of gear. I think the fact that it has Groove Tubes name on it (rather than a magic mojo name - ala Neve/API etc.) turns some people off for some reason . If the same box was made by Shadow Hills or Manley, more people would have a hard on for it.
