Yeah...they're definitely interesting. I was checking out preamp options when I heard about the Don Morrison models. I researched those at AudioAsylum.com and ran across someone comparing them to a nOrh, and saying that they liked the nOrh better...that's how I first heard about nOrh. They're both simple, SS preamps and they're both supposed to be extremely transparent. The nOrh has a few nice features and more inputs than the Don Morrison (video pass, copy out, MM phone stage)...it may also have some better parts. Unfortunately, neither has enough inputs for me, and I'm using a MC cartridge on my phono. The nOrh and the Don Morrison have similar disadvantages...there's no way to audition them (unless you find an owner that's willing to show their's off), and I don't quite know what their return policies are. Both are priced very fairly, considering that a Pass Aleph P has only four inputs and sold for $3500-$4000, depending on the model. Don't get me wrong...I own a used Aleph P...it's built like a tank and it sounds great. However, these units probably offer very similar performance, if not better, for much much less.
