My response on a couple units--
Yes and no on the ACP88 on vocals...I think a lot of people get thrown by the LED's. They see it light up in a hurry and think it's hitting too hard--nobody notices that it starts at -1 db, then -3, etc....the scale is funny. I use it on an a cappella pop group, and for everything but vocal bass, I think it does pretty damn well. Sure I'd love an upgrade, but I'm not complaining.
Ditto the TC M-1. Again, I think it comes across a little weak when all you have to use it on are vocals. Maybe a better way of refining your search is to think about price ranges? Or are you just gear-dreaming?
Speaking of gear--has anyone heard Klark's "new" EQ, the DN370? It looks kinda sweet, and I'm wondering how well it works...
