I tried the Twin X's preamp and conversion with both the UA 610 Unison emulation and without, but both weren't clean enough for my tastes -- definitely "prosumer"-y to me.

I wish you tried the rack mount X, curious if you'd come up with the same conclusion. I know the Twin X's conversion specs are similar but they aren't quite the same. In any case I will be going Lynx as soon as I don't have something else more important to drop the 1.5k$ difference on.
