For the record this is the older brent made unit not the BAE

Thanks man, you must have responded before I hit send

What is the difference between the older one and the newer ones? Just the transformer? Someone on here described it to sounding like a Neve dpa, but I cant imagine a preamp at 300 ohms sounding like the bright dpa. Please explain

If you can get your hands on both for a test run, that would be the best way!

They might sound like a DPA up to 50dB of gain but past that they sound different since the 1272 doesn't have the second preamp gain stage.

You would just have to test it and see, I've even heard several DPA units sound very different from one another.
