Pricewise, that's certainly not worth it. The Delta 1010LT is about
$200, and the DSP2000 is at least $450. You can buy a lot of really
good preamps with phantom power for under $250. Heck, I went ahead and
bought a Beringer Eurorack UB802 6 channel mixer for $50 because it
sounds clean and isn't much more expensive than the average preamp.
