I bought my V3 years ago when they were selling essentially new ones on eBay for $850.  I'm not sure why, probably just laziness, but I stopped using it for a period of time.  But last year I had an otherwise really nice recording "ruined" (to my ears) by the artist unexpectedly doing a couple of songs solo acoustic, and I can hear too much noise for my liking when I turn up the volume on those tracks.  That was with a stock HD-P2.  Now I'm committed to never leave home without the V3, whether I'm running the HD-P2 or 680.
yeah if clean gain is your goal, its hard to beat those. i really feel like i almost wasnt really using it at the typical 30 dB gain

well Technically one of those is mine ;)
and we have a V3 not pictured that I run V3>HDP2 and I usually hand rocksuitcase the coax out for the DR680. I had Ted make us an AES >Coax so I use that for the "backup deeck" if we are running together

I sold my V3 a while back and then a few times i had some tunes come up random in foobar and was like hmm whose recording is this ? And when I looked they were mine with the V3 in the chain. So I grabbed another one

my HDP2 is Oade modded and sounds great on its own, but the V3 tapes have something extra

So what kindms is avoiding saying is we are Grace hounds.! Sort of like Della Mae's Bourbon hounds!
I looked for a photo of all three Grace units but couldn't locate one.
Pictured at top of photo is SN 002 owned by my Texas Taper buddy for years then gifted to us in 2017.
Then kindms bought the bottom one last year which we have used 4-5 times now.
He also runs the V3 he was mentioning. It's a Grace party when we drag those baybees to the show! Someone offered to sell me a V2 at Panic last weekend, when I asked what price, he said what do you want to offer? I never countered as I got distracted. lol

Was out, but now I'm in. I picked up a nearly mint FP-24 to run with the M10 for onstage/second rig a few days ago.

Small rig yes (PSP-2)
Big rig no (HS-P82 pre's are more than enough)

I’m in! I’m a big Grace fan too. Have a V-2 and V-3
Also an FP-24, Mini-Mp, Sound Devices MP-1’s. Also AD1k
AD2K. Can run it all too with my R-88.
My Mixpre3 sounds great by itself, it sounds better
with an Nbox or V2 in front of it.

My 29 year old daughter gave me that and I take
it to every show and text her a picture like that. I am blessed to tape
anything so it’s nice.

I sold the FP-24 a few months after I bought it and just bought a Mixpre. So back in, again  ::)
