I just sold my V2, running straight into the 680 now. Can't hear a difference and the lower weight means leaving my car at home more often and walking a few blocks to the venue.

i typically just plug right into the 722 and use the internal pre's b/c I don't want to carry the 148(or fix my batteries)
this is pretty much my story.
i mostly like the 480>v3 sound, but the v3 sits at home most the time due to the extra weight.

All you guys talking about your sweet pre's sitting at home due to extra weight kills me!  I can't afford any new additions for the foreseeable future and your stuff is collecting dust.  Oh well.  I guess you must go to big shows and have long walks from the parking lot.  Most of the shows I go to I'm parked right across the street and can run out between songs for a quick nip if necessary.  LOL
most of the time im taking the bus to/from shows, but often has 1-2miles of walking involved.
i have had the v3 for 10yrs, i keep holding onto it in the hopes somebody releases a relieable, tiny recorder with spif in...
if it aint broke, don't fix it
