Why would you want to vote if you haven't used all the units in question??

That's why polls here are kind of a joke-- you get people voting on what they have, or what they've used once or twice, even if they haven't heard the others, people voting on hearsay having not heard any of the stuff at all...

Gotta love it!

I don't have any real Neve pres per say but I do have the MA5s which are supposed to be close and I find that the 2 compliment each other and I usually land up using both on everything I cut here.

I have Neve's (an 8068 console), API's, Helios etc..

It really depends on the track i have found, though when Neve's are cranked it doesn't get much bigger..

I told alphajerk his poll from 6 years ago got brought back from the dead....he got a kick out of it. FWIW, I've owned many Neves and APIs and while they're both great, its my Quad Eight pres I cant see myself ever selling. They really are just about perfect.

I voted for who fukking cares as long as it rocks....
