CA STC pres vs. SP-PASM-2
« on: February 09, 2013, 05:07:29 PM »
Anyone ever use the SP-PASM-2?  There's one for sale in the YS and I'm curious as to how it compares to the STC-9000 and STC-9200.  I'm very happy with the Church pres.  Would I have any use to have the SP pre?  The only difference is it appears the SP pre has gain of +29 and +50.  Now sure if I would ever need +50db, is this preamp more aimed towards recording very quiet performances?
Mics: Nak CM-300s, Nak CM-100s, CP-1s, CP-2s, AT-853s(Cards, Hypers, Omnis) CA-14s(Cards, Omnis)
Pres: CA STC-9200, CA-UBB
Recorders: Tascam DR-70D, DR-2D, Edirol R-09

ISO: 1 Teac ME-120, CP-3 Caps, AT-853 Subcard Caps

If you need 50dB of gain, you're gonna just run MIC IN at that point. :)

I'm with Bean, I'd say stick with what you've got -- if it's a 9200, most definitely because it's quieter than the 9100.
