B&K Reference 50 vs Peachtree NovaPre

Hello all,

I've got a B&K ref50 that I've been using for years and I recently stumbled across the Peachtree Nova Pre. Unfortunately, I am not able to listen to it in my own room, so I have to ask people who have experience with these... Sonically speaking, is the Peachtree superior to the reference 50? The reference 50 has a 24bit DAC, but I'm not sure if current technology makes the "cheaper" Peachtree pre a better sounding unit.

I appreciate all input on this topic,
