    The SWR Marcus Miller pre-amp has not exactly received a lot of talk/rave/hype/love here at Talkbass.

    RedPlanet being the notable exception to this. ;)

    What's not to like about the M2 - personally, I wouldn't mind having one... its full of features, even reasonably priced, tho I admit the blue front panel is not really my thing..... :cool:

    Neither SWR or pre/power setups seem to be flavour of the month.

    That's my problem - TOO MANY features!

    I don't need Marcus' name in huge font in my rack. Looks like a nice enough pre though. I'm not sure it has much advantage over going with a grand prix and a dbx or rane comp in the same two rack spaces.

    a tiny bump for some more votes and opinions...

    9 voters so far is poor showing...

    I'm sure it's a nice sounding pre. However, two rack space for a pre and two for a power amp! That might have made sense back in the day, but now with massively powerful integrated amp heads in everything from cigar box sized micro's to three space lead sled monsters, with a vast array of powerful features, and many doing 2ohm operation, I don't really see the point any more.
