The CAT will soundstage better, the BAT is only ballanced (in and out) The CAT is only single ended. Both are at the top for dynamics, build quality goes to CAT. Longevity goes to CAT, pride of ownership goes to CAT. Need a remote-go with BAT. Need a readout for volume go with BAT. Ever want to go single ended low watt go with CAT. Sound quality is a tie. The safer way to go even though they are both great preamps is the CAT in my opinion. I think resale price goes to CAT also.
