Putting Coloration into Pespective
I have owned and used two other brands of transparent preamps, grace and p-solo. I liked the p-solo on acoustic guitar but when using a pair on a symphonic choir I actually prefered a Pacifica for the session. From that point I had a tendency towards some coloration rather than transparency. I have always heard and read good things about millennia and when I found they had a 500 series module I decided to try it because of its reputation. I am happy to report I ended up buying two of the modules. Not really thinking about transparency I really like the sound on many sources. I really feel that now a I have choices in my pres. I currently own a great River, a 610, API and a Pacifica. The millennia really adds another dimension and options to the proverbial sonic palette. I was very skeptical at first but I now really enjoy my options and turn to the millennia on many instances. There is a difference in transparent pres and in my experience the transparency of the millennia is very usable and preferred.
