and it's variable gain, so as long as the 148 was hot enough you'd be fine.  i don't believe the mytek will add any gain, just subtract..

That sucks I usually have to add +20 or more gain besides what the 148 offers, I guess my search goes on.

no.  it's got a level knob and even separate trim pots.  but i don't think it'll  ADD gain, just take it away.  same as most a/ds

so if the 148 isn't hot enouogh, i think you're out of luck.  but i may be wrong.

1k, bm1, mme, v3 will all add gain.

the 1k, mm3 and v3 also are preamps though, so they already have the electronics for adding gain, right? 

tood r, where are you? :)

can't you raise the internal gain on the 722 when running line in up to like +12db  or am I mistaken?  i can't remember and i am work without my 722 to look at

edit:  woops...that doesn't count as it is an all-1-one.   but yeah scott a lot fo the dedicated AD converters especially bigger rackmounted ones for studio or multitrack recording use have a fixed gain such that calibration between the pre and it are necessary.

I think technically you are correct...but you get lots of headroom with the boxes I mentioned, and that headroom is attenuable. Now I *know* that with the 2k, you can't adjust the gain at all, but just add headroom to allow more signal from the preamp, but only to the max the pre will send.

i love my 192, though i've used it but once.  don't feel like i'm sacrificing a thing leaving the apogee at home in favor of the mytek.

I'm really happy to be here. I'm not really a sales guy at all and I really hope that I can learn a lot from you guys. I'm very new to live recording and I'd love to see how it all works. Michal hired me to help him answer questions about the gear so he can deal with designing stuff so I hope that me posting these first couple of times is not considered spam. Thanks again!
