As far as sweet spots, IMO, I would adjust the preamp as you would in real life to take the best advantage of it, then RMS match in post. This will take advantage of each preamps' best attributes since post production techniques like this have much less interaction on the signal by comparison.
Interesting points, thank you!
And they even make my testing easier... Hoorray!
