Best preamp for 460's?
« on: July 14, 2003, 09:25:14 AM »
Looking for opinions. I run a UA-5 now, but am thinking about adding a pre in front of it and just using it as an A>D. Maybe an MP-2? a V-2? A Sax? Like I said this is witha pair of 460's. What do you all think?

Hmmm...so that's it?
148/248 or nada?
I don't buy it. :(
I really just wish I could just get the P-mod for my UA-5!

that sounds like a good option, or ps-2 with a mod sbm-1. Excellent results!!!

I ran 391s>B18's>Mod SBM1 with great results.  I did add a pair of transformers to give me a bit more gain to work with, but the results were solid.

Yeah a V3 would be ideal, but it's out for the same reasons as the Oade preamps. $$$$

How do you think a V2 would sound? Same unit essentially, isn't it?

Exactly the same..  definately go with the v2 unless you want the v3 a/d.

personally i've never been fond of the 480/460 > v2 sound.  fwiw i ran 480 > mp-2 for awhile and loved the combo.  with all the used mp-2s for sale these days you can score a pretty darn good deal on them too.

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

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.
