Locomotive 286. Along the same lines at the Coil 286. Is an alternative.

If you are using ribbons, the AEA preamps I like a lot.

If you want one colorless with a ton of details, the old Grace Preamps(801/201) would contrast what you have. I had two 801's, oh man were they clear. They were brutal, and exposed all other weakness in the tracking. Forced me to get really good and mic choice and placement.

I have not used a Coil 70, but am considering one myself if I start doing more volume of tracking. I am currently using the Locomotive and Vipre.

But it sounds like you are looking for tube color.....Get the Coil 70
