Not personally. As I said this stuff is very difficult to find in 
Europe. If you google in the rec.pro.audio newsgroup you will find 
several opinions of the RNC (compressor) and RNP (preamp).

Interesting, but these are different beast, I think the hamptone pre 
must be much more colored (transformer, two stage jfet amplifier) and 
less versatile, but it can have an interesting sound in some situation. 
You can find a lot of DIY audio stuff, but you need time and skills ...
I have skills (I am an electronic engineer) but not so much time !!
