I’ve never heard a phase switch make this kind of drastic difference. Since most tube coloration is really the transformers, and it has no transformers – it doesn’t sound like a tube pre. After that, you can post your question and our members will help you out. I had the opportunity to use a Symetrixthe comparison does not really intrt, as they are really not the same type of sound.

Request a new review. One of these preamps has come up for auction here in New Zealand. Does not color the sound unless you add gain. The VTP-1 is a little dated, being limited to bits and Then, as Mike said, there is the RNP. Find one used for a lot cheaper.

It is based on the SSM preamp chip which as others would say is ok, but not as good as the which is in the Symmetrix SX mic pre. There is a VERY big difference in sound when flipping the phase switch with a single mic.

From 3 to 5 it gets mildly fuzzy but too much for and acoustic micing for a clean sound and it is totally useless beyond 5 unless your looking for that “telphone voice” distortion. The input impedance is close to dibitech, that is what I attribute the “enhanced” hi-end.

I have one of those pres also I cant tell you how utterly disappointed in this I was. I mean I tried it on my acoustic, elcectric amp, keys digitevh and my voice and it just toatally underwhelmed in every way. Nice OD is achieved using input and output gain knobs. I got one of these as a trade for some rackmount labor.

Your spot on with what I’ve found with it. Dibitech pre just lacks any kind of real character I would almost take the pre’s in my vrp-1 Berri Dave Runton, May 1, Would buy another to add more tube front end to my DAW.
