Had a pre-amp with both the gold and silver....and the silver was the better of the two.

Talon, I can't say the difference is a big one. The things you mention were not where I heard a difference, what I heard was just a bit more subtle details...as in a female singing it was easier to hear her take breaths and on Paul Desmond, and other sax players, easier to hear the sound of air on the reed. No real difference on bass instruments that I noticed. On some of Diana Krall's earlier CDs they were simple trios and her piano was miked in a manner that with the silver you could hear more of the foot pedal mechanism when she would engage or disengage a mute or sustain.. Hope this helps.
