AU-S610 TUBE MIC PREAMP. OVERATED?

Hi. Just getting into recording and recently purchased an AU-S610, which is in the mail as we speak. Anyhow, what do you guys (gals) think? Is this preamp worth $800? Anything else you can think of that rivals it for the money? According to a friend of mine, the built in pre's that come with my E-MU 1616m are supposed to be stellar. They sound pretty good to me so far, but I've only recorded a handful of songs and I'm still feeling out Ableton Live and all of the other gizmos. Any input would be lovely. I'd like to stay off the subject of hookers and coke, unlike my last post. Peace.

I dont like the UA-pres, but that is only my personal preference.

A lot of people dig them, so whatever works for you..

I wouldn't say the E-MU pre are exactly stellar... maybe serviceable. And they're definitely nothing like the 610. As far as being worth $800... Depends on what you're doing. Personally I'd have waited to find one used, these are pretty common and you woudn't have had to wait long.
