I cant say anything. I was in the same boat looking at this and the anthem TLP1 in particular. If you can listen, do so. If not then you have the same problem as I do!
I bought an Adcom GTP-502 as it was/is the matching pre to my amp. I think if you can listen and like the B&K then buy it. It is reasonable and convenient and that is what attracted me to it. If the sound can match even half of its functionality, then to me it is a good deal
I had a PT-3(predecessor to/same as the PT-5) in my 2 channel system matched to a B&K amp. Really nice sound. People say the B&K sound is tube-like. it had cool features too. The interface/remote took getting used to. Eventually sold it when I consolidated systems into one. If i were putting together another 2 channel system I would buy one again in a heartbeat.
