i was always very happy w/ the 480 > mp-2 combo.  i just hope the mp-2 works well w/ the 140s.   ;D

Thats actually what sparked the post. We're seeing a butt-load of the MP-2's now, but with them discontinuing it, it may not be long before they are hard (and pricey) to find. I love the 393>MP2 tapes I've heard.  

I don't think the MP2 will hold it's value a la the modSBM-1.  There simply isn't any competition to the modSBM-1, hence it holds it's value well.  But the SD MixPre is basically the same as the MP2 with a slightly different feature set, the most notable of which is no M/S.  Not many people doing M/S with the MP2, I've found.  Just my rambling thoughts...can't concentrate at work when I'm leaving for vacation in ~36 hours...

Let's hope not.

The EAA PSP-2 sounds good w/  480's. I don't see why it would'nt sound good w/ 460's.

Second that, since it's what I run now :)

Whats a god price for a used EAA PSP-2?
And are they ever around?
The MP2 is looking promising simply because of supply.

I paid 625 shipped for mine about 2 weeks ago.  Good luck finding one, though.

I think 600-650 is about right. IMHO, I think you would be way more happier with the PSP-2. Post some "ISO's" over on the Oade board and just wait it out. You could get lucky............ good luck!

If bychance you're hitting Atlanta Phish I can let you borrow mine to play with, since I won't be using it.

Damn.  My friends tried & tried to get me to do the southern run, now a chance to run different gear is involved? I'm such a tool.
Thanks for the offer, echo but I'm only able to do Star Lake>It this time around! :(

did you get the ua-5 from oade?  if so you might want to consider getting the wmod which would sound pretty nice w/ the 460s.

Nah, unfortunately It came used. Not sure if it originated with the Oades. Thats what I'd ideally like too.

maybe you should give jim a call and ask if they have record of selling the ua-5 you are using.  can't hurt to ask.

Speaking of the e.a.a....what's it sound like?  Transformer based?  I wish there was a little more competetion in the pre markets for tapers...our options seem to be either, as you get up there at least, mme, v3, v2, eaa, mp2 and that is about it as far as pre's go.  I guess the oade mod's would be nice, but quite frankly I wasn't impressed at all with the stock pre's.  Another random musing about pre's...I wonder how hard it is to change the pre chip in the mini-me to another one ala grace.  It would be nice to just pay 400-500 bucks for a new pre chip instead of my ultimate plan of buying a v2 or 3 to run in front.  I have got to get a little of the film off the mme and I will be inn business...it sounds fantastic, just I need a little something else to finally satisfy my quest for the best tape possible.
