My experience...

In the past year I upgraded from an M-Audio Octane (8-ch preamp with conversion) to 4x API 512c, 2x Purple Biz, an A Designs P1, and a Great River MP-500NV through an Apogee AD-16X.

There was definitely an overall improvement in sound quality. However, when comparing my Beyer M160 on drums going through these different pre's, the differences were very, very minimal to my ears. And I'm still fighting my small, barely treated bedroom.

I'm very glad I upgraded my pre's and converters. I feel I'd be just as happy with only 512c's or any of the other pre types I have now.
