You've said several times that you really like the true system pre's and that they are very clean. I've always thought you were crazy for this because I was underwhelmed when I tried the solo. You've also said that you bought the focusrite 428 because it is so clean and does nothing. *sidebar. I always thought the 428 was quite colored especially in the high end so now I really think your crazy(thats okay I know I'm crazy).
