Good remote controled, used preamps out there.
I have a few quick questions about a few preamps and phono stages out there that work well together. Current system: Maggie llla’s, VTL 140’s,
Meridian 206, Sota Nova (almost a Cosmos with the updates), ET ll arm,
Benz Ruby .03mv version, Audio Note AN-S2 trannie, and all XLO Reference for cables.
The preamp I am using is an Audio Note M2 Phono and the preamp it replaced was a VTL Super Deluxe. The crux has been the Benz. I am wondering what pre/phono combo’s out there work well. I miss the soundstaging and imaging of the VTL, but the phono stage never was up to the Benz and the phono stages at the time didn’t do much either. The M2 kinda worked.
I keep reading good things about the Rogue Audio stuff. Because of the WAF (sub $1500 used), I am curious about the Magnum 66 remote/Stealth phono combo. Anyone used this combo? How about soundstaging and openness? Imaging?
Any feedback or ideas of other combo’s that are remote controlled would be greatly appreciated.
