Just keep in mind that what you are hearing is the differences in how Rick is sitting and the differences in 2 performances. There's no way to eliminate the differences in two performances with difference stereo images due to positioning and hear any actual difference in preamps. For what it's worth, I preferred the 1st one, probably because the stereo image is nicely centered. Once I fixed the balance and levels on the 2nd, I couldn't hear any real difference, other than differences in performance.
