Universal Audio LA-3A (switches on rear)

I was installing my new Brent Averill 500 rack (and MA5) and needed to pull out the LA-3A (Reissue) to move to a different location when I re-noticed the toggle switches in the rear of the LA-3A. I hadn't tried any different settings since getting it and was wondering what your take on what sounds best (OR) what to use when. I love the simple controls on the front and its a great sounding unit, just wanted to hear other's uses of this nice unit. BTW, I almost wanted to sell it and go without compression in the front end but it looks like should keep 'er. Thanks for spreading your knowledge. The Clearmountain Mod seems pretty cool.

Right now its set to Compression and both mod switches are in up position.

put the rear switch in the 50 dB gain position and use it as a mic preamp

Now that's a unique answer. I guess as long as it's a dynamic or ribbon mic
that would work. Might try that with an '57 mic.
