looking at a Pre-Pro Anthem D2 vrs B&K REF 70


I am switching out my Krell showcase 7.1 I am looking for an amazing Pre-Pro. The anthem has great reviews and the B&K has almost no reviews. Does any one have any thoughts. Music is my first concern.

come on.................... offer some insights
I have the Ref 70 and love it. Very clean. Excellent mids and highs. Use if for 2 channel and HT. Excellent at both. Not sure what else to say. A couple minor bugs but nothing serious and new firmware is out.
After going through 3 pre-pros, I've ended up with the D2, and I love it. It is one of the few components that I have no desire whatsoever to even consider changing.

The automatic room correction is amazing. This is where it charts each speaker's freq response, and automatically corrects it for the room. This is a "cant live without" feature in a pre-pro as far as I'm concerned.

I can't comment on the Ref70, as I've never used one.
I am another very happy D2 owner.

My Cd player is an Audio Aero Capitole

I use the slim devices Transporter to access my music library and streaming audio over the internet...the D2 has a fantastic DAC for the especially high-end signals

I have twin McIntosh 2102 amps feeding Kef 205 speakers.

Note: i am finishing an addition and will go multi-channel at that time.

Finally, for more info in either of these units you are considering go to avsforum.com and use their search engine by product.
