Why don't you like tube preamps? I am asking because I am thinking of trying a tube preamp.
Thanks. Had I known you were also considering a preamp, my recommendation on how to move forward would have been different (in your other thread).
@jackd makes the point, succinctly...
In any case, I wish you all the best in the journey and what lies at the end of it.
I would have suggested a system level approach vs a component based one. Thinking holistically of your preamp and amp choice, together as one, even a 'trio' of 'one' inclusive of the DAC vs. approaching it a component at a time.
It's something I'm tussling with: that is how to approach our hobby vis a vis choices / changes to my system in the future.
I went to a Simaudio dealer today. Listened to 740P and a bunch of other Moon gear. Impressive! Although I realize it’s impossible to evaluate a Preamp given it being hooked up to unfamiliar gear and speakers. But it looked handsome and very nicely built. They did have it connected to a monstereous Moon power supply
