- One of the best pres at any price. Review by Guy (Posted on 07/02/2013)
Purchasing a BG1u is amongst the best sonic investments I've ever made. I take it to any studio I'm recording in, and whether they have Neve, SSL or other much more expensive pres, the DAV always gets extensive use. When compared to my Calrec preamps, the DAV excels in detail and presence, but still very musical and breathes life into any sound source. I would go into details for applications, but the reality is that it performs flawlessly with all mics, instruments and voices that I've thrown its way.
The stepped gain makes it ideal for stereo applications and for recalling settings, the high pass filters and pads are very useful features, and the integrated DI input for guitars etc is very convenient and sounds amazing.
Based on the BG1u, I'll certainly be looking at other DAV products and trust they'll be equally as impressive. Thanks to KMR for the recommendation!
