Letting my Lunchbox go.. it's time.

I'm thinking of selling my 11-space OSA LunchBox with 2 OSA MP1-A Vintage pres and 2 API 312 pre. I'm just not into them anymore.
I'm thinking about getting the True Systems 8 channel pre...
It's just so much cleaner and only 1 space... I'm trying to narrow my gear down to Clean and Portable items, sense I've been doing more and more mobile recording. Forgive me, but I still have my UA stuff and I'd like to add something super clean and transparent and ditch my API stuff.....

What are your thoughts...?

Yea that lunchbox is worthless man. I doubt you'll find anybody wanting to buy that garbage, but I'll take it off your hands for free (you still have to pay shipping).

Seriously though, Grace Designs make a really nice 8 channel pre that is remote controlled. Not sure how much it goes for, probably around $5k, but I just used one yesterday and it sounded great. Extremely clean sounding with ridiculous headroom. It might be beyond your budget but perhaps worth looking into. Probably didn't hurt that I was using an AKG C24 either...those things rock.

I just ordered a 11-slot BAE rack which might arrives later today....

Yet seriously, there's no pre in my current 6-slot rack, except for a Shadow Hills Gama Mono. I have thought about buying a Gama 8, but then I spent the money on something else. The Gama 8 is too big for you anyway (4U or 5U maybe).

Good luck on the purchase!
