However, although the Precision 8 ascribes to the "simpler is better" approach, there are a few nifty features that set the Precision 8 apart from some of its other audiophile bretheren. One such feature is the adjustable peak metering. The Precision 8 does not have huge, sexy meters. Rather, it features utilitarian 5-step LED meters that give you a signal-presence indicator and four closely-spaced steps near the peak. A unique 5-position switch controls the peak reference point for the meters: +26 / +24 / +22 / +20 / +18. This lets you calibrate the meters to match the desired output level from the unit. What a terrific feature. I found that the +20 setting was a perfect match for my soundcard, letting me use the Precision 8's meters to perfectly prevent digital overs. Another great feature is the built-in mid-side decoding. With the press of a button, the channel 1 gain knob becomes the "mid" control and channel 2 knob becomes the "side" control, and the unit outputs M/S decoded material on channels 1 and 2. If you like to do M/S work (I do) then you'll appreciate this feature. In the past I have had to rely on digital M/S decoding in my DAW, but with the Precision 8 I can let the preamp do the decoding and audition the sound before I commit it to disk. That's pretty much the entire feature rundown of the Precision 8. It did leave a little to be desired. I can live without a bass rolloff, but at the very least, I would have like to have had input pads on each channel. Using the Precision 8 to record kick drum and toms, I found that I had to use inline pads on the mics to prevent clipping. True Systems sells DB25 and TRS inline -15 dB pads to use with the Precision 8. Pristine Sound The real feature of a preamp like the Precision 8 is the jaw-dropping clarity and purity of its signal, and on that count, this preamp absolutely does not disappoint. I had several preamps in-house to compare against. Since this is not a "product shootout" I will not name names, but suffice to say, these are some of the top names in the esoteric market. In every case the Precision 8 offered first-class transient response, frequency response, and absolutely no noise. It compares favorably with any of the most esoteric mic preamps available. Basically, you reach a level of accuracy where it becomes very difficult to discern a difference in a fair A/B test environment. I found a couple of preamps which were the sonic equal of the Precision 8. I found none that were its sonic superior.
