Anyone experians with TVC's from Audio Music

I am from Belguim (Europe) and new here....
The "Audio Music R-S " TVC is a very well building pre, how is the sound quality?
A frend have the Marantz AV8003 surround processor, this one is also very
good for (high end) stereo. A very universal machine.
Is it possible for the TVC to beat the 8003 on sound Quality?
