    Yes, there are soooo many gear options it can make your head spin!

    Not a channel strip but the BAE 1073 DMP was a huge game changer for me. It was my first class-A pre and I love it so much more than my Focusrite octopre pres and old Motu pres (kept the octo around for when I need lots of inputs, sold the motu). You can find them used on ebay for around $750 I think. My thinking was to get a really good pre that I would use on lots of stuff and just use the eq and compression in the box. Then later on add hardware comps and EQs if you really think you need it.
    I'm interested to hear what others suggest. Good luck!
