Although on the bottom end of the preamp market, the Ultragain pro really impressed me. Even when stretched, noise is low, and the Valve sound really does add an extra warmth to the signal. Highly recommended.
Owning my own home studio, I needed something to pump up the volume on my mics. Everything else was too expensive for just the pre-amp that I needed. I bought my first Behringer Mic Pre-Amp and was impressed with the low noise on the output. It also works great with other mono sources. I've just recently purchased my 4th Ultragain Mic 100. Gotta love the price too!
This little mic preamp is great for helping the signal on almost any clean input including mics. The 12AX7 inside is a Behringer Prestige tube which is not a bad tube. I would recommend leaving it as it is for almost every condition. It is clean and less prone to overdrive than some of the other 12AX7's on the market. If you are actually looking for the high gain tube sound, you can get that from this same unit as well by swapping in a nice high gain preamp tube. I tried one of my Mesa USA tubes in there and it responds well although keep in mind that the unit is fairly cold and designed for clarity.
Being that I'm relatively new to the home based studio world, I can't compare the Behringer Tube Ultragain MIC100 to any other mic-preamps, but I can say that the quality is amazing. I upgraded from doing my vocals on a basic soundblaster soundcard to an Audiophile 2496 which when paired with the MIC100, gives a clean, warm, professional sound. The Behringer MIC100 is worth every dollar of its cost, plus some.
