Am I ready to set my reputation on fire............ Sure. ARC. I now have mixes that I can trust and translate on every system without wondering. The software is so highly looked down on by so many but to me it has been a God send.

BTW. This is what I do for a living.

Early solid state German broadcast modules (later versions are different and not as good). My favorite one, which I have 8 of, are the TAB made Telefunken V376 mic pre. It was the first solid state V76 and it's just amazing, as good as the best Neve (or anything). The TAB made Telefunken W695 eq module (have 4) is also wonderful with a killer 60Hz bottom and a great mid range boost. The other best kept secrets that I have would be the Neumann U77 and KM74 mics. These are from the little known FET 70 series and require a special (but easy to get) T power supply. The U77 is just a classic, closer in sound to a U67 than the U87, and I prefer it to the 2 vintage (Made in Western Germany) U87 mics that I own. The KM 74 (have a pair) is also a great mic and as good as a KM84.

The Alesis/Groove Tubes AM-51 is a pretty decent condenser that nobody ever mentions and can be found for ridiculously low bucks from time to time.

The DBX 160SL. Unlike any other DBX product currently made and you'd be surprised at how many people blow it off because they relate it to the low end DBX garbage on the market without knowing anything about it.

I always love when those people come in to check something out and I show it to them. The reactions are priceless (in a really good way).

Sometimes it's good to let things stay a secret. If everyone knows everything, where's the mystery, the chance for discovery?

Scour ebay, look for off-color oddball pieces that are $7 and have no bids. Pick one that looks interesting and buy it.

Ya never know.

The best kept secrete? I'm not sure..you probably shouldn't be secreting anything around nice recording equipment. Now secrets on the other hand...I'd day #1 would be spell check so your clients respect you as a professional.

Btw
Beyerdynamic pro 880 has closest iphoneipod headphone tone compare to all other monitor headphone.
If you sound right on beyerdynamic pro880, you sound good on all apple free headphone!
And genelec 1030a/8040a sound almost same tone as beyerdynamic pro880.
If you sound right in pro880, u sound good in genelec's as well!

And one reason why mix on Sony MDR 7506 will get u the job done for LA film field: most of Hollywood directors are using this; most director hate treble hype signaland they love sub signal. mdr7506 always hype on treble and lack of bass which push u to do opposite.

Good luck!

Exactly. Bought a few old "paperweights" thinking I could make them work.

Just got a Thompson tad-4 off here. I can wait to check it out.

Commiserations. Funny how that always happens, when commenting on someone else's outlandish spelling misadventures!

I've got a blue 160 and two purple 162's, all used in nice shape for about 3 grand. This recession hit the live sound company's really hard.
