SPL Gainstation or SSL alpha channel?

Hi guys!

I was looking at these two pre's, and wondered which would be "the best choice".
I would mainly use it for vocals, guitars (acoustic and electric) and bass.
Besides hiphop, I do some rock and house.

From what I've found so far, I 'd have to put my money on the SPL, because its more versatile, and I find so many praising reviews.
But I also have the impression that the SSL preamps are a popular choice for hiphop, rnb...

What I'm looking for is a preamp, with A/D for about or under a $1400 (actually €1000).
Channel strips are nice also, but my main goal is to invest in a great sounding pre's rather than the extra's.

Is there anyone that has heard both pre's? What would you suggest in my situation? Do you know of any better alternatives?
