No but they're both in the ballpark sonically for a lot less money.

I'm saying simply put, that I'm not a purist. Function over fashion. I've worked on 80's series Neve consoles and they're fantastic, but there's a point where functionality and meeting a budget is key.

I don't think vintage units are should be worth $7,000 a channel with PSU, no.

Also my best pair of 1272's do sound extremely close (since they're made from original marinair transformers, etc) They lack the EQ, but throw on any good inductor based EQ design and you're right in the ballpark.
