    Sound Purity, With Grace

    I say "purity" because this is the most transparent, true-to-the-source preamp I've ever worked with. If you're looking for your pre to add "color" -- look somewhere else. If you have your mic placement down and love the sound of whatever you're recording as-is, this is the pre to use.

    Major League CLEAN Gain

    I, like every other recording engineer, enjoy a little "color" in my tracks, but sometimes I like to do the coloring myself, and not have to be at the mercy of the pre-amp. This 500 series pre is so clean, so incredibly transparent, that you'll truly believe you're in the room with the instrument. It really is like a wire with gain. That's all that needs to be said. No character, no color, no noise, nothing but perfect amplification. I can't believe I'm the first person to write a review on this. Maybe all the other owners haven't stopped playing with it long enough to put fingers to keyboard, huh? i would have given it 5 stars if there was some type of gain meter on the panel. It does have a single led that illuminates green when signal is passing through, and turns red when it's overdriven, but it would be nice to see the output metered in segments. This is definitely worth what I paid for it, and actually a bit more. You'll love it, I promise.
