ok...so my IOD keeps breaking. it's been in total working condition for about a month out of the 4 months i've owned it. it's too bad, because i LOVE the sound. it has that PERFECT mixture of tube warmth while still retaining 100% SWR clarity. i'm going to drop it off at the service place either tomorrow or sunday (too bad it's a nearly 2 hour trip there and back) and give it another month. what should i do after that? try to get a complete new one from SWR? get a Grand Prix (in addition to my tube compressor, with a super nice 12ax7, will it be almost as warm as the IOD?) get an Aguilar DB659 (but does it maintain that hi-fi ness?) any other preamps i should look at? this is so frustrating....i finally find the piece of equipment that makes me sound exactly like i want to sound...and it just keeps breaking.
