This really isn't going to be a fair fight, not even a little.
If you read my blog, you'll know already, that I don't run a booth out of my home anymore, and no longer keep a lot of gear here. From bouncing around town though, I've been getting the equipment bug (I have Gear Acquisition Syndrome, if you will), and decided to throw down on some mid range consumer kit.
I've got a pretty well established mic collection, so I figured it was time to invest in a decent little preamp/compressor combo. After reading some reviews, and using one in a studio, I've been pretty interested in checking out the Really Nice Preamp and the Really Nice Compressor from FMR Audio.
So, I bought one of each.
I'm the proud new owner of an RNP8380
and an RNC1773
. To start breaking them in, I figured what better than setting them up against my old workhorse the ART Tube PAC
. I picked my two Sennheiser mics for the shootout, an MKH416 P48
and an MD421u5
I couldn't get samples working up on this site, so to hear the comparison, head on over to SomeAudioGuy (Living Room Lab)
I was pretty surprised by the results...
