Default Re: Omni Pres/Converters vs. Other Pres/Converters

I saw your question on Gearslutz about this as well. I can't answer everything, but I did recently get to briefly hear an acoustic guitar being miced through the Omni pre's, and then the Neve Portico pres (going through the Omni conversion). It was a very obvious difference in character.

In hearing these, and hearing the consensus of others, the Omni pres are very clear and neutral, with good detail. I think they would be similar to Grace Design pres. Very different from any transformer based pres. But still very good sounding and musical and detailed. The DI's sound very good also.
