Nobody here has used Capri preamp? Anyone?

Hi, I had both same time, side by side. The original unit has more organic sounding that I spent hours and hours without getting tired of- just listen and enjoy music But side by side, the S2 is a better unit; more refine and define across the sound spectrum. Every notes, every plucks on every musical instruments and vocals are just simply better. If I could exaggerate it, think, the original unit as a great awesome cassette player and the S2 as a DVD player when they first came out. The S2 just opens up and has more air and clarity which slightly goes out of my comfort but in the end it’s a better unit and that’s what I upgraded from my beloved Capri original. Yes, the price of S2 on used market is nearly double the Capri original, and the improvement, IN MY SYSTEM, is about a quarter but surely noticeable.
Dont get me wrong, you will still love the original immensely, but I kept the S2 because, fortunate enough, I can afford to keep it today. I prob would not keep the S2 if this was 10 years ago.
I hope this helps
