Got a little cash now.......

SOLD my KIWI and should be selling my Alesis AI-3,(Still available) soon. SO I've been thinkin, I have 1100, so what do I get.
Here's what I have.......NO MICS though. Happy with my Sputnik, and other OK mics. Figure mic pres will make them sound acceptable.

Mic Pres....Joe Meek VC1, GAP73, ISA220, (8) MR816x's, RME ADI-96
Processors..Avalon 747, Distressor, (2) VLA's,
AD's...PSX100, RMEADI-96, MR816X, AI-3 (2) Panasonic MDA-1 ADAT's.

My wants.....Lunchbox with an API pre or comp, GA COMP54, AD8000SE, Dangerous LT, or just something special...GRNV, Pacifica....which is why I want the lunchbox....wont cost as much for a module. LAst but not least...get lucky and get a Aurora Audio GTQ2 MKIII of course with another 1K or so. I'm just wanting to come out of the studio with quality sounding product for my clients, though they're happy now, I'm thinking it can always be better. Sooo, what would you get?

$1100 will get you close to 6-pack and an API 512c. Bingo.

1100 will get you into the SCA ballgame as well - if you like to build things that is.

What about a Phoenix Audio DRS-2? Theres a sale here, but it's the older version. What the difference vs the newer looking version? I read there's only 1 output transformer, none on the input. I can afford that...So?

I was thinking about the ISA one, different from the ISA220 with the Lundahl?? thing. But would sell the 220 first to force me to buy that. LOLheh

Yep Decided on Lunchbox, but gonna go for a AD8000SE with ADAT AMBUS FIRST. IF I don't get that, then Lunchbox it is. Then it's a matter of what to put in it, that will be fun!!!! What do ya think? Just wanted to upgrade my last bank of ADAT on my DA7. MR816/RME 8 I/O/ALESIS AI-3 and (1) MDA1 ADAT has the the cards right now. Got a FREED up MDA1 for converting the D/A to the other side of the 8 I/O. Just got a thing for A/D flavor over Mic Pre flavor.
First search choice at eBAY is AD Converters APIAD2 or UA2192 are my BIG DREAMS. .
