Can anyone tell me about these brand/units?  Are they good? Worthy enough to be racked?

I had a pair of 760's I think.  They had a transformer balanced discrete mic pre which sounded really interesting and the EQ was a chip festival, but very good.  If you dont have any great gear and cant afford a 1073, this is an excellent direction to go in.  They have a nice airy thing happening with them that you dont hear in a lot of gear.  I sold those long ago and dont miss them much, but I would be really interested in mixing a record on a console loaded with those modules.  Apparently, the bus on the console is mic level, so you can plop any old mic pre in there to use as a summing amp on your 2 bus which is a great feature I think.

There are many different models.  Although somewhat similar, they do differ.  What model(s) are you looking at?
