    I've owned my m801 since 2006. I bought it to do remote recordings of a classical opera singer I was working with. This is an incredible piece of gear, it is built like a tank and produces pristine uncolored sound with incredible dynamics and extremely low noise.

    Besides recording the opera singer I would mic her piano and organ accompaniment with the m801 and my collection of vintage AKG microphones. We recorded this to an HD24 running at 96k and received many many compliments on the 3D character the sound had.

    The dual output jacks are very handy too. I would run an output directly to the recorder and a second output to my monitor console so I could hear and solo the sounds without fear of damaging the master location recording.

    If you want one of the best sounding preamps in the world today buy the Grace Design m801.

    Good luck and good music to all!

    Excellent headroom and clarity. All of the bells and whistles I expected out of a high end piece of equipment. Easy to use. Informative owners manual.

    reliability across the board

    The Grace 801 has got it all! It's 8 channels of totally transparent gain are a go-to for any source. Every channel has a pad, phantom power, phase reverse, and ribbon. The Ribbon switch is great, shifting the gain up 10db and disabling the phantom power. It's built like a Sherman tank and it adds some class to the look of your rack. My remote rig consists of an Apogee Rosetta 800 and Grace 801 and I couldn't be happier. If you've got the bread, lay it out on this 8ch pre.
