Not that it's interesting except to me but the combination is more than I hoped for. The Phantom is not only beautiful to look at it mates with the Momentum perfectly; for me. It has added more detail and shimmer to the Momentum while providing no etch at all. I think the Momentum lays a little to the dark side tonally while the Krell is very neutral and transparent adding just enough light for my situation. I would think the Krell 202 preamp would have similar results. My comparison base is running my Bricasti dac direct into the Momentum which is also very good. Unfortunately the enemy of good is better.
Last comment. The 'ARC' dealer I bought the Phantom from said the Phantom was in an entirely different league than the ARC Ref 5. I had assumed he'd Krell bash. It's a great piece of audio gear and has Dan's fingers all over it.
