Hi there, sorry to hear you're selling the Proceed, I hope it's served you well (I sold it to you). Currently I've been considering the Benchmark DAC1 that is all the rave. If the Proceed is still ticking, you may want to give this a try as it does have balanced outputs and input. You could run an AES/EBU from the proceed to the Benchmark and then balanced outs to the preamp. Just a thought, and it could save a lot of money over the Audio Aero. Probably doesn't look as nice, but they say the sound is world class and it is quite versatile as it can be used direct if you preamp ever goes on the fritz. Cheers.
