One of the most essential connections in a home studio is the one between the microphones and preamp – the pleasant bit of hardware that enhancements the signal of the microphone so that it could be recorded. The best microphone in the world that is connected to a cheap preamp is not going to sound good. In the same way, a cheap microphone connected into a high quality 6i6 preamp sound is not going to produce high quality.
Solid-sate preamps are using transistors to enhance the quality of the microphone. These preamps could be made to create as clear and comprehensive a sound as possible or could be made to produce nice level of bend to your music. Thus you always have to consider that you are going to use a nice preamp for better sound system experience.
