Interface: LYNX Hilo, I used the apogee DUET 2 for a few year and can say I liked the sound quality for the $. The quartet uses the same converters and without hearing the unit perform, I would say go with something for a little more quality like LYNX. The quartet is more on the entry to mid level quality IMHO.

Vocal Mic: Neumann TLM 49, I own a CV-12 as well and can say that I prefer the TLM 49 for vocals as a "catch all, go to MiC".

Mic PRE: Avalon 737

Im not familiar with LYNX, i think maybe I should think about the apogge Rosseta 200. Do you think the LYNX would work better than the Rosseta?

The Avalon 737 is a mono preamp. Im looking for a 2 channel preamp. Plus, I allready have an Avalon 747 compressor, so I would like to try another brand to get more posibilities. May be an Universal Audio LA 610.

How does the TLM 49 work on acoustic guitars?
