Problem is that you cannot trust your ears if they are not getting the correct reference sound; acoustic treatment (basic...even one tile) will make the biggest bang-for-buck in getting to the CD sound-quality that the OP aspires to.

I don't think the TLM102 is a good mic on which to judge preamp quality; I think the OP (who obviously has a passion and wants to record vocals today) should go for a U87 or similar (maybe hire one for the weekend).
