Good and bad, but definately not ugly....

Depends on what you are looking for. You will hear things like"no character", etc. And that is somewhat true in relation to other pres. But if you are getting your "character" from the source, or other places in the chain it can be very nice.

Very flexible. DIs, input/output, variable imp. options. Probably depends on what else you have (mics & pres esp), and what you like to record and hear.

For example, if you have Neves, APIs, etc. and DON"T have something like a GR or maybe Pheonix Audio that can/will provide some "character" but can do the "transparent" thing this might be a good choice IMHO. Many others do not agree re: price/sound options.

Again, depending on what you like to hear would probably not recommend it as your on pre.

In the words to describe sound dept - " A bit more forward sounding than some other pres that can do "transparent". Wasn't that helpful?

What else do you have? How would this fit into your available choices? Can you audition one? Only thing to do at this price level....

They sound big. Everything recorded thru those get's sized XL. Sometimes it's a sound that's almost too big though. (i.e.: in the context of a mix you might sometimes wish for more focus on one frequency range.) They don't sound coloured but they don't sound boring either. From the little time I've spent with Millenia's I can say that I much prefer the sound of the Avalon 2022 and the M5 (it's predecessor).
