Pacifica vs Avalon 2022 vs Focusrite ISA828

I don't know if anyone really cares to hear this but I though I'd do something to contribute to this site.

I recorded these files DI with my acoustic Taylor using the Focusrite ISA828, Avalon 2022, and an A Designs Pacifica to an Apogee AD/16x. All three files were recorded at the same time with the same levels, no compression, no EQ, no nothing. I spent about 20 min doing this so don't give me $hit for the quality.

Here are the MP3's

Here are the AIF's

So lets play the guessing game! I'll post the answers later.

Example 3 had more low end on my listening speakers (ok-ish computer speakers) and example 1 was almost the same but a little more balanced overall.
My preference "in this listening example" is 1, 3, 2 with the caveat that 1 and 3 are pretty much even and 1's being a little less boomy winning out...
