Or would it be the Portico II 2?

Sad to hear this is being discontinued. Luckily I do have a pair of Portico II that I quite like. I was wondering, though, has anyone tried the PIIC up against the 4 channel 5024? Do those sound like just the preamp section of the PIIC? I would love to have more channels of that sound in a compact form.

I have 5024 and the 500-series 511. I use the preamps interchangeably. I wouldn't hesitate to use them around a drum kit. The sound is consistent. You can definitely have more of that pre.

What about Portico II vs the 5024? It seems like they should be pretty similar based on the description.

Oh, yes, I have a pair of Portico II's - I was assuming they were in the mix. I use all three interchangeably.

i'm afraid they discontiniued the PII because people want the more "vintage-styled" RND units.
customers don't want the white Neve, they want the good old grey one.

Life is like a pendulum. One day, these white Neves will be the holy grail everyone is clamoring for. 🤷‍♂️ And the world keeps turning and turning...

That decision sucks dog's balls.
Guess sales were dismal.
Grey is not sexier.
