Pre-Amp that mate well with Threshold or Pass Labs


Hi all, I have a McIntosh C39 Pre-Amp. I have the chance to get a Threshold S200 or a Pass Aleph 30. Do you think my pre-amp will mate well with either of them? I'm just trying to get some insight before I bight the bullet and get one. My current amp is a McIntosh MC2155. Thanks in advance.

Your current preamp should work OK. There's really no way to see how good it will sound in your system until you listen to it. I had the Aleph 0's. BAT and Audio Research sound good with the Pass. I tried a Pass preamp, as well, but didn't like it.
"I tried a Pass preamp, as well, but didn't like it."

Either your taste is different than Nelson Pass' or it was something with your system. Either way it has no relevance.

Nothing like stating the obvious.

"Either way it has no relevance."

Why?
