    ok tell me if im an idiot or not but im guessing reference quality mic pre;s will sound like tsomething coming from a horse butt compared to studio quality right. the reason i ask is because i se all these peavey desks at a local guitar store and rhey all say reference not studio quality mike preamps.
    now for question two what can you tell me about the alesis studio 24 or 32 mixers.
    help me please
    happy holidays

    "Reference quality" preamps?
    On a mixing desk?
    By Peavey?

    Sounds like just another buzzword to me.

    I thought "reference" and "studio" meant the same thing in that context. I could be wrong, as usual.
