I've had one here for review for a couple of months. Focusrite is sending the dig out card. Pretty nice box for the money.

jwh1192, I think the 428 might be the shit if you're looking for four all-purpose, versatile pres/DI's for around $1700 - plus having the dig out option possibilties. The ISA series is fairly clean, so it's nothing like any of the Vintech stuff or the Aurora GTQ-2.

If you've got the 2NV I don't really think Vintech or Aurora are necessarily going to complement it to a large degree. I'd look into something either cleaner, like Focusrite, John Hardy, Sytek - or else look into an API 3124 - which runs about $2500 and is the shit for any kind of music except for perhaps audiophile classical recordings. The Phoenix Audio (UK) DRS-2 is also an excellent complement to the 2NV.

That Chandler might be a good option that will provide a bit of contrast in a still coloured way. Or if you are thinking about four channels (and for even more contrast) the API 3124+ would be cheaper than the Vintech, but of course, no EQ. So I guess it depends how much you want the EQ.
