Classe CP-35 preamp.

Has anyone had any experience with the Classe cp-35 preamp?
How does it compare to the old Classe 6?
The Classe 6 is better sonically, richer, fuller. Stronger bass foundation also. The 35 has a remote though it sonically is more in line with the old Classe 4. Classic case of which means more to you, the sound or the remote.....
