Pass XP-22 vs Simaudio 740P


Hello.
I use simaudio 740P pre amp.
And power amps are Bryston 4Bsst2 and Pass XA25.
Speaker is KEF REFERENCE 1.
I am about to go to Pass XP-22 pre, but I know 740P is goood as well.
The reason I want Pass XP-22 is that sound from 740P is stiff a bit for me.
740p is transparent, detailed and staging is proper.
Actually, ARC reference 3 was good for me.

So I hope to get your oponions from 740p to XP-22.

ps. My partner doesn't like the design of 740p.
       Just want simple design with silver..lol.
