I've gone through several preamps and I now have a Bel Canto PRe1 purchased here on AudioGon. I believe it will be in my system for many years. It replaces a Sonic Frontiers Line 2 and I couldn't be more please with the sound. Very detailed and yet not harsh. I am using Homegrownaudio.com Silver Lace XLR ICs to a Bryston LR crossover to two Anthem MCA2s through Audio Analysis Oval 9s to Maggies 3.6Rs. The PRe1 made a major difference, spelled improvement, in the overall sound. I conduct an orchestra and other vocal and instrumental groups and know the sound of "real" live music. I am very satisfied with the setup I have but would like to upgrade the amplifiers in the near future. I believe the Bel Canto Pre1 to be one of the BEST; a real sleeper. Happy listening!
