I’ve read some reports of those same quality issues with Radial, too. I bought one of their Gold Digger phantom powered mic selector boxes and one of the channels got noisy, especially when you adjusted the volume pots, and I discovered mics plugged into it definitely lose something sonically.

I built a Hairball Gold last year with the Hardy 990 op amp. I’ve never used the Hardy M1 but the Gold sounds to my ear like the way I’d want the Hardy to sound. That pre gets used here every day. If you do build your own iteration of an M1, please document it. I’d love to see the process.
