Are Preamplifier’s Relevant Today or just a Hinderance with Digital Playback ?
I’m just curious,.I know from past experiences using a well designed preamplifier can and will make a difference however the computer audio crowd say different with the use of HQplayer with volume control including multiple filters and adjustments in OS mode using a preamplifier is blasphemy to some of them .
What’s your take on this subject? Thanks in advance.
There are some very high quality integrated amplifiers, both old and new, and most would be quite happy with the results. Often outclassing some separates. However, the best performing systems still use a separate preamp and power amplifier.
