Oui bien mais je suis Flamand, ma Francais es terrible!

If you want to find vintage Neve preamps, which to me sounds like a crazy idea because they make spot on remakes these days, I would check Vintage King or Funky Junk France perhaps.

Aurora Audio makes awesome 1073 clones, like racked preamps per 8 or EQ as a set of 8. You can mix and match. A lot cheaper than vintage Neve, maybe you can find some old Calrec preamps, they go for a lot less and sound fantastic, they hold their own against neve preamps.

Yes maintenance is easy on the SSL. I know a good technician here in Antwerp.
