Searching for preamp combination to complete my setup 500 Series Preamps

Searching for preamp combination to complete my setup

Hey!

Happy new year everybody!
I'm pretty new to this forum and I hope you guys can help me.
I'm about to move with my studio and want to improve my recording setup.

I already got 8x API 212l, 2x API512, 1x UA 610mkII and I'm pretty happy with that stuff. I am about to get two Neve 1073lb (Love them!) and maybe one Chandler TG2 but I want to have 16 channels in total so there are still two Preamps missing.

Any suggestions what could fit in that setup? I was thinking about a stereo/dual mono unit but I also got some space left in my lunchbox. Something not as coloured as the API and Neve stuff would be great.

These two units shouldn't go above 1.000 bugs if possible.
Any Ideas?

a Sytek 4-channel would be a good choice, clean and fast

Within your budget, check out the Warm Audio stuff. Outside of your budget, for clean, the Forssell SMP-2A. For versatility and subtle but desireable tube-based color, the Sonic Farm Creamer+, and for solid state versatility, the APA Juggernaut Twin.

Thank you for jumpin' in! Heard the Forssell just once, liked it though. Any idea about the price tag?
Maybe it's worth a try...

The lunchbox version is $795/ch I believe and the two-channel preamp is a little over $2K now? Anyways, always nice to have that level of "clean" in the mix. It's my favorite preamp for my R84 ribbons.
