Class A Misnomer?
 
I’ve been doing research for the best mic pre for my needs, mostly VO but also for Vocals and Acoustic Guitar. Almost everyone boasts “Class A” but is that a misnomer? I refer you to this lecture by Rupert Neve:
http://www.imusicast.com/html/rupertneve.html
After the lecture it seemed clear he was there to sell the Pure Path, but he mentions “Class A” in the lecture. Is there further reading on this?mezed
