Actually I have demo'd these two set ups at the now defunct Celestial Sound of Chicago( great store-Ricardo is a fantastic person to do business with!) I must say that given your preference of music I will recomend with much confidence the preamp not of my choice between the CJ and Krell. As I listen to different music, my preference is for the CJ. But it is not going to inject the energy needed for Rock- it will not get you to where you want to go period. For classical its going to be fantastic. Depending on where you are comming from, the trade off may be accecptable if you mostly listen to classical. Not the other way around though. There is no compatibility problems with the CJ-none.
