I have demoed the BG2's and have a Sta Level, 175B, etc, and used to own a BA-6a. The BG2 shares a similar output stage with the BA6a (and Sta). If memory serves, I think the BA6a was a little more dense and gooey but the BG2 was still flavorful and far more useable on more sources. The compression characteristic is more even (in a good way) than was my BA6a.

The "British" mode was actually pretty clean while the American mode along with the 150ohm setting brought some hair out of it. The BG2 was certainly nice on voices but I really liked it most on guitars (acoustic and electric) and bass.

The BG2 can also be used a s a mic pre! Set it to the 150ohm position and turn it up!
