So are there any decided opinions on the flavor of the pre?

Transparent? Warm?
Any size comparison pics against the Sony PCM-M10?

Seems like no more discussion means the pre is no good for concert taping.

Whick pre are you asking about, the FEMTO, or the uPRE?

Any size comparison pics against the Sony PCM-M10?
a couple scattered around ts; the uPRE thread ( http://taperssection.com/index.php?topic=169341.0 ) and for the FEMTO - http://taperssection.com/index.php?topic=166016.msg2072904#msg2072904 also one on audioroot's site of both a uPRE and an M10 which sometimes doesn't show up

Seems like no more discussion means the pre is no good for concert taping.

I wouldn't say that. My current usual setup is mics (Beyer803s, Neumann AK150s or MG270s) >uPRE, AES out >Oade W-mod FR2 AES in. I can't tell any difference in sound with the uPRE in the chain from when it's not. I leave it in because level adjustment is easier with the uPRE and is currently my only pre with AES out.

I run mine with Line Audio or MBHO mics and it's a great little preamp - but, yes, there's only one version with min gain 10dB, now.
Please see below for the reply to my initial enquiry that I got from Antoine Malnati.

Quote
* Si j'ai bien vu, la mixette "Femto" peut être alimentée par une prise Hirose-4P comme la SD mixpre-d. Est-ce correct?
Le FEMTO est livré en standard avec une fiche d'alimentation Hirose comme la mixpre-d
* Comment est-ce que la "Femto" réussit dans la comparaison directe avec la mixpre-d concernant le bruit propre de la mixette?
Le bruit ramené à l'entrée (EIN) du FEMTO est de 129 dbU @ gain max. Cette valeur est comparable à la mixpre-d.
 * J'ai lu sur le site taperssection.com qu'il y aurait au moins deux versions de la "Femto", une nommée "L" ("low gain") à une amplification minimale de 6dB et une autre version à 18dB. Par contre, sur votre site web, j'ai seulement trouvé une spécification qui parle de +10 à + 64dB. Est-ce que l'amplification minimale est customisable ou est-ce qu'il y en a effectivement plusieurs versions de la "Femto"?
Il n'existe plus qu'une seule version avec un gain min de 10dB.
 * Avec la mixpre-d j'ai dû utiliser un atténuateur de -15dB pour ne pas saturer le prámpli avec les micros externes (lors de mes enregistrements des concerts rock). Est-ce que l'emploi des atténuateurs externes serait nécessaire aussi avec la "Femto"? En ce cas, quel niveau d'atténuation serait recommandable?
Pour l'enregistrement de concerts rock un atténuateur sera indispensable. Une atténuation de -20dB est une bonne valeur.
  * J'ai lu que la "Femto" a une sortie symétrique sur XLR 5 broches. Est-ce que le câble de sortie ligne stéréo symétrique XLR5 -> 2 x TA3F qui accompagne la mixette est un câble standard (à remplacer facilement dans le cas d'un oubli ou une panne éventuelle) ou une version spéciale fabriquée par Audioroot?
Il s'agit d'un câble standard.
  * Est-ce que vous vendez aussi des câbles XLR5 -> 1/8" / 3.5 mm jack stéreo? En ce cas: quel serait le prix d'un tel câble?
Nous pouvons fournir ce type de câble au prix de 39 EUR (hors taxes)

Thanks for the info!  I can't imagine 10db being too much gain.  Hell lots of the pre's are 20db fixed.

One thing that worries me ordering from France

will do!   I plan to run it Saturday for a friends band but it's a horrible taping situation so I don't expect much.
