this is Jan from Germany. For I'm a bratwurst, my English doesn't run properly all the time but nevertheless I endeavor to make my concern clear to you
what i'm aiming at is a mic preamp and a vocal compressor. both the devices should yield good results to hiphop vocals and they should produce a present, open and somehow... let's say "big" sound - i can't define with other words due to my limited vocabulary. owing to the wide variety of offerings, i really must acknowledge my ignorance.
the devices i currently like most are the following:
my question is, if somebody already has had the pleasure (what a sentence-structure - don't know, if it's right heh) with this equipment and so might submit a proposal which solution could be the most appropriate for me. better alternatives in the price range i chose are welcome as well!
so... i hope you could read my English okay. i'm really looking foward to your replies!
please keep in mind that akzent audio has a very (!) good service policy. for instance they offer free replacement units for the time a broken unit has to be sent to them for repair. thumbsup
perhaps it looks like they're expensive at first glance, but it's all for a reason.
you don't pay them just for the gear, but also for customers' support that is hard to beat (at least in germany).
It does not LOOK like they are expensive, they definitely ARE expensive.
Akzent audio has demo-units to ship around, just like a lot of other companies who sell hi-end.
That`s no big deal and does not justify their high prices. It is part of the game.
(I know another german distributor who actually drove some units to my front door for testing).
There is this other seller who gave me his demo-unit while I waited for mine to be shipped.
This guy also guarantees replacement units while repairing yours in case it is broken.
There are some good people around.
Last time I bought hi end I saved about 800,- € for ONE single unit just because I didn' t buy from a.a.
I felt that this was a little bit too much for "good customers support".
