Opinion? No. I have a MiniMax and I dumped my EAR 834L.

Our Rogue 66 (a nice pre itself) was sold and now sits a majestic sounding Minimax (It beat out a Joule I was auditioning). This pre does something special. Gives you the musical midrange of classic designs (Tube retifacation perhaps?) with the modern imaging, clarity, detail and freq. extremes of new ones (point to point wiring?). Solid contruction, heavy transformer, tube retifation/choke power supply and point to point wiring are some of its features. Just a note, I believe all user demo units that has gone out have not come back. : )
