Tascam UH-7000 vs HS-P82

Does anyone know if Tascam used the same preamps and/or converters in their UH-7000 as are in their HS-P82?

I doubt there can be a simple accurate answer to that. Even if the same amplifier or conversion chips were used in those 2 areas of function, the circuit layout and topology will almost certainly vary, as they have different spaces to fit into within the cases. Comparing printed or tested specs alone won't give you that information.

If the circuit boards were identical that might give a better clue as to 'symmetry' between the 2 devices...and it will take a bit of chassis unscrewing and photography of circuit boards here to reveal that !

I am interested in both units, possibly planning purchase.

Any user opinion here would be very welcome.

Thanks for your reply and you're absolutely right. I was hoping someone might have a little insider knowledge. Sometimes Jim Williams knows about the Tascam components. I'd be interested to know if they used the same ones in both units. The UH-7000 preamps are highly praised. Could they be of equal quality to the HS-P82?
