I'd be remiss if I didn't mention (again) the virtues of the Ampex pres of olde! My personal favorite is the 350 (and it's predecessor the 300, of which the only difference is the power supply, or so I'm told). Mine is a twin 350 (354), and sounds anywhere from clean to bold.

I guess it depends upon how it is used, and what you need to get out of it. But I have found everything I need except phantom power from these oldies.

When I need phantom pwr, I use an ISA428 (in 110 mode) 'cause I like the "sound" of transformers.

Did I mention that I wouldn't sell/trade mine? It's that good!!

And by the way FFTT, what you show (above) looks quite a bit like my first Ampex 300 (nearly the same as a 350)... Fantastic piece of kit!
