Yet another Preamp question (UA 4110)

Yet another Preamp question (UA 4110)

Hi there,

I know these kind of questions like "which preamp should I buy next?" have
been covered like a million times. But I´m specially interested in the new UA 4110
( or respectivley 8110) and couldn´t find much info here and elsewhere.
So I´m basically interested, is anyone using this piece and what are their opinions?
What I´ve read is, that it seems to be a really clean and transparent preamp and
I wonder how much variation in sound does the shape switch really give you?

At the moment I´m using an ISA 428 as my main Preamp. I find it also to be
somewhat clean and transparent ánd would like to know if the UA could be the
right piece of gear to compliment it.

I mainly record from Rock to Heavy Metal and looking for a preamp that can give me
some more color, specially for recording distorted guitars.
I kown a lot of people here suggest the Chandler stuff for guitar, but as the prices
recently have gone up, this is too exspensive specially here in Germany (the TG 2
incl Power Supply costs about 2800 EUR!!!)

I also read really good reviews about the new Portico stuff from Neve, but at the
moment these can only be ordered direct from the US.

So thats why I´m basically asking about the UA 4110, as it´s claiming to be very
versatile and being able to give a lot of variation on the sound.

Any replys or comments are greatly apreciated.

If its anything like the discontinued 2108 mic pre it should be pretty nice, especially with a street price of about $2000 - it will be going toe to toe with the API3124+ so it had better hold up to the hype.

I like the concept a lot. We'll see.

I called a few dealers.
The 4110 is not available yet.
The 8 channel is and it sounds great.

Thanks for the replies guys.
I didn´t know that the 4110 is not avaiable yet. Most shops here in Germany
have it already listed for some time now.
Well, maybe thats the the reason why I hardly find any user reviews/info
