    Nice preamp........like fixed compressor

    I combined it with an API 550A.........nice sweet sound. Tried it with vocals and a Neumann 193, bass thru the DI, guitar cab........smooth controlled sound. Very musical and clean. I see lots of potential for this preamp.

    Great MicPre/Comp

    517 is a real big step up for me after TL Audio. Incredible sound, incredible compressor (in spite of the fixed ratio and fixed attack&release times).

    A. Not an A+

    This is a good preamp. I worked on a 5088 for about a year, tracked lots of guitar and bass... some drums... some vocals. These pres really shine on guitar and bass. Nice, big, round bass. They are quite forgiving on heavy distortion guitar and smooth on clean guitar. Drums sound good, too. This is just a great pre... it is not even close to a 1073 or 81.... but it is just an entirely different beast. With the addition of the vari-phase and compressor, this is a tough one to beat. Get 2 and you will not be disappointed.
