Imagine you want quality, yet, you would like to not go broke by purchasing the said high quality preamp. What brands or models would you look for that would deliver signal to the optical or coaxial ins of the 1680 or 2480? I have read on previous threads how external pre's were used to feed the regular 8 in's as well.
If that has worked well to boost low volume levels and kept out the noise, let me know as well.
I have had good luck with a Rode mic and pre for a session that the client brought in their own setup, but am trying to do this on a budget!
So many drummers, so little time...
