What I mean is, why would you ever not want to EQ first? Horses for courses, I guess. Personally I like to compress an equalised signal, not a dry one.

Regarding the preamps, I’m struggling to understand your point beyond fishing for someone to tell you they’re noisy. In the thread you linked, steffenromeiss suggested putting a test tone through both desks. You could then directly compare the noise floor against a known signal reference level.
