Hello, We are in the market for a portable stereo microphone preamp that we can use with a Macintosh computer. It should have XLR connectors with 48 v. phantom power, variable gain, and very low distortion and noise. Our microphone is a Neumann KM84i. Two that have been suggested so far are the Symetrix SX202 ($230) and the Behringer ($210). I would appreciate any comments on these models or suggestions about anything comparable in price that would be as good or better. Jim Beauchamp j-beauch(at)
