Rupert Neve Designs Portico II vs Aurora AURORA GTQC : I need your opinion

Hi, no doubt they are great, would you tell me your experience with both on :

-Sonic differences,
-What you like most and less ( in case you don´t like something).
-What applications do you like them better?

My aim is for rock/pop, vocals , bass, electric guitars and keyboard.

Thanks!

You're probably right, but I found this thread searching on google and I didn't pay attention to the section

I'll open new thread.
Thanks

After all these years of no replay, I never expected my thread would be open again, better late than never.

I have no idea how the Portico II sounds, but I have two GTQC's.
I can only compare them to what I have and have had befor (UA LA610, SSL Alpha Channel, Focusrite ISA One, Focusrite ISA428, Avid Omni and Avid Mbox.

Of all the above I actually like Omni's preamps best. So does my vocalist.

It's simple to use, sounds clean and detailed and has a lowcut filter and phase shift button.

The GTQC sounds a bit bigger and smoother but also darker (not so bright).
However with the EQ it can be as bright or dark as you like.

Phil, your English is certainly better than my French. What I was implying was that even with brainstorming of all the great opinions here on Gearslutz,
to purchase either one of these two units are going to cost you some serious coins. It would be the best scenario for you to find some posts that offer some clips. However...and I think Edva would agree, the only way to find out is to try both of them in your world.

I know this might be difficult, but there are probably European dealers that carry one of both units. Then you will honestly be able to determine which offers the best performance for your material. BTW, both of these units are stellar. I believe that almost anyone would benefit from either of these two monsters.

Can anybody else jump in here on either of these units?
