What speaks to me is the Sound Devices MixPre 3 (there's also a 6), because it has a good quality brickwall limiter. Very few similar boxes do. Normally I do all dynamics in post, digitally: better quality than analogue, imho, and above all, reversible. But... voice gigs come along that are a medley of normal performance and shouting. Working without an engineer, I absolutely need that safety factor so that no digits get injured in making the work.
Only last week, a client commented ahead of booking "We worry about home studios. Levels all over the place". Glad I was of my analogue assistant!
