The Focusrite Clarett OctoPre has been popular.

I guess I am a little skeptical of the 4-710. It seems like its too good to be true with it's many features. I am also skeptical of things like tone blending. I don't want something that has lots of features but the overall quality of those features being of a mediocre level. Am I overthinking this? The idea of going all UA does appeal to me in terms of support.
It's a good pre for the money but it doesn't live up to their marketing hype. The tube side is small sounding compared to the 610 and the "1176-style compression" doesn't sound like an 1176. Basically, you're getting what you're paying for, no more and no less.
