So it seems to be similar to the Zoom analog gain adjustable before recording.

Only in 32-bit mode. Per my e-mails with SD, posted above, there is adjustable analog gain in 24-bit mode (unlike the F6)...

any mixpre-II owners interested in having the unit tested by an independent reviewer?

I just sent my Zoom F6 to Amir who runs the audiosciencereview website

He has done measurements and review on tons of gear with his Audio Precision analyzer, but really none in this product class

I also sent him my Tascam DR100-mkiii as a control, but a better unit to compare would be a mix-pre II, to determine the implementation of,  and extent of advantage, of multiple ADCs > 32-bit float in each device.

from my experience. practically speaking, the noisefloor is so low on modern gear, its nearly impossible to discern advantages of 24 bit vs 32 bit without professional test gear. And i have yet to see any real-world demonstrations of the practical advantage of 32-bit float

That site is somewhat playback centric, he hasnt done many ADCs, but here is an example of one review/shootout

while a lot of the content on that site is over my head, its pretty well-respected, with significant contributions from industry/tech experts

I feel like we would do well to utilize their resources and contribute where appropriate
