Good stuff to our ears...don't have the old originals around to compare to, but we like this new design and are stocking them.

i'll give them a good thumbs up.
i will be working and a article with them in the near future.
remember i am slow: )
( i was bad sick when the unit first arrived so it has taken some time to get it in rotation ).
i have a unit and it looks and sound great!
very much worth a look.

TritonAudio D2O V2 samples

I have had such good expirence with the Triton pres that I wanted to share it. Here are some samples on drum overheads. On a recent rock demo they beat out my Chandler Germs on overheads. I did use the Germs for Kick and snare though

Here is one sample of the drum overhead, they don't seem to want to leave that spot. This is a single R84 centered over the kick about 4 ft above the drummer. For the other samples you can check out the review here on GS.

Bought it last week new... used with a Soundelux U195 and a Peluso 2247LE for vocal overdubbing. It's simply fantastic! Deadly quiet, without any kind of noise. Only problem is about some of the switches that are not really quality wise. Sometimes when you push them off they do not come back and you have to use nails..

I'd be interested to hear more about the D2O as well, if anyone can offer up any comparisons it would help immensely!

We have it in our Clipalator preamp section, in 500 series as well as the 19" stereo rack version. Sounds great!

I compared the D2O 500 series to the Lachapelle 583. The D2O seemed to be a lot smoother upper mids/highs. The 583 seemed to have this glow/flare in those upper frequencies that didn't agree with my ears very well, particularly on the electric guitar clips. The D20 had a similar flavor, but so much more smooth and sweet. I am definitely going to save up for the D2O as my next pre.

Could someone explain me the sonic differences between a classic Neve 1073 and a classic Siemens v72?

These are two completely different designs. The Neve saturates the high end and has a low mid emphasis, the more you push it, the more this becomes apparent. The V72 is very detailed in the midrange, and doesn't saturate the high end like a 1073 would, making it sound a little more focused and clean. The low end is very clear and dimensional. I have never really pushed a V72, as I have only used it to get a very clear, very warm vocal sound.

I like the big low end of the Neve but I don't like the high roll off (on my vocal). Do you think I could use the v72 to get a bit fatter lows keeping the natural top end?

The Triton D2O or a V72 could definitely get you into neutral territory but with coloration. It's smooth. Very smooth. Very detailed. I wouldn't say it emphasizes the lows like a Neve does, I would say that it's more of a midrange shimmer. The perceived loudness of the low end is going to be more apparent because of the smooth top end, leading some people to think it's a bit murky. It reminds me a bit of the Drawmer 1960, but there really isn't anything on the market like it. What you're describing would be more a long the lines of the Skibbe 736-5. Fat bottom / neutral top.

IMHO, I think that the 1073 is a brighter sounding preamp coloration than the D20 or a V72. In practice, I am often switching to a 1073 design from a Chameleon Labs 581 to get more top end. Compared to my 581, my HA 73r has more bottom and more top. Compared to the D2O, the 73 is more hazy - with more bottom and more top. YMMV.

Here for the gear
 
I was thinking of adding the D2O 500 series to a portable lunchbox (can't lug my Tele 72V around). Does the D20 500 series play well with other preamps? Specifically I will be using it with a Neve 1073LB and an API 512V. If not, does anyone recommend any other tube 500 series press that will get the "V:" sound?

If you are looking for variation, I would try a Chandler TG2-500 (brighter). Clips are in Zen Pro Audio's Clipalator (try the mix ones).

(I only have the D2O ATM.)

Comparing the Triton D2O (FET->Tube) to the Elysia Skulpter on voice, I would say the differences are subtle if you don't drive the D2O. The Skulpter may be a bit more open, the D2O a bit rounder in the bottom. Once you start driving the Triton, you get (asymmetric) saturation that is more of the dark variety. Not sure there is enough gain on it to go into super hard clipping on voice, maybe if you scream.

Picture shows what the saturation looks like (Skulpter unsaturated top, D2O bottom).

I see D2O 500s for sale but they have a DI in and a few differences on the front plate... Are these a newer version? I don't find anything about this change and especially them adding a DI. Is one version more desirable than the other?
