I'm looking for a mic pre, to record mostly heavy bands.
I want 2 channel, and D.I. is allways welcome.

I haven't heard it yet but the Really Nice Micpre fits the price range. I have three RNCs and I love them I gotta figure the RNP sounds good.

Someone told me the RNP is very, very noisy... the preamp I plan to get will work for overheads and averything else... so I gues, the silent the better right?

That 'someone' hasn't a clue. Mark plainly discusses the unit's noise upfront. It's a non-issue. Try it for yourself, I'm sure you'll be pretty impressed. What pres are you currently using?

The RNP trades a bit of noise performance for better fidelity. Check out the FMR website and check out the RNP description to get the details. I've not seen one online review talking about the noise being a problem in use. If you are recording mostly loud source material, I don't expect you'd have an issue.

I'm hard pressed to suggest anything else in your budget that will be quieter, espescially since little of it could also be considered better.

Nevermind that comment guys... I just found out that the person was kinda "influenced" whe the comment was made...
I think I'll get a RNP myself very soon...
