Any one who ranks this mic pre lower than a 9 shouldn't be recording. For example, on the front side impedance loading, there are four options. Each one changes the ACTUAL transformer. Its not some IC that mimics the characteristics, there are actually four different input transformers. It's like having four different preamps in one box. Regardless of mic: ribbon, condenser, dynamic, this thing will bring out the best in whatever you plug in to it. Additionally, the hand selected tubes break up in a complimentary way that is thick and clean, not muddy and hazy. This is the best tube mic preamp being made at this point in time. I've heard or used everything out there over 2 grand, and the Vipre is the one to beat.
