The Bent Audio products are great - highest recommendation. John is a superb fellow to deal with, and the prices are such a steal - much value to be had there. I will likely get more from him, I already got the components to make a killer phono stage, and also considering a passive pre as well. I've heard the TAP unit and also the NOH, both are excellent, I'd probably go for the NOH personally.
I have had both the Bent and the Audio Consulting Silver Rock passives. In my system, there was no comparison. The Silver Rock is the best preamp I have ever had. Total transparency, solid bass, a marvel. Obviously, system matching is very important with passive preamps and in my system the Bent, while very transparent and lovely, had no bass at all. Could very well be different in other suystems. The Silver Rock on the other hand even compared favorably with the VTL 7.5 which I just parted with, also a great pre, but ultimately, the Silver Rock still rules! I only wish I hadn't sold it! The Silver Rock comes in a balanced version.
