Great Neve clone mic pre
What is your overall opinion of this product?
I love this preamp and wish I could have 20 of them. It definitely colors the sound, but that's why I bought this one. There are other more transparent preamps in this price range, but this is exactly what I was looking for. The ability to control the amount of coloration through the volume control is a nice feature as well. It has held up so far with no issues. Will definitely buy more as the budget allows.
Best in its Price Range

Your general opinion of this product.
This is probably the best pre at this price point. This pre holds up very well with others that are in the $600 - $1,000 price range. So it is definitely a bargain. I wanted to choose between this and the more expensive ISA One. After I tested both out, I ran after the Golden Age. It has a sound that is absolutely gorgeous and blew away the ISA One for what I was looking to do. As I said before though there is quite a bit of coloration with this pre. So if you want clean unaltered sound, this is not the pre for you. I think the coloration does add the warmth though that is missing from many other modern units these days.
