Use this song if you are doing an A/B with Preamps


Sixty Years On by Elton John.
A Demanding song with Orchestra, and a Lot of Head Room.
Played loud, it reveals Intense Strings and Swells
Whichever Preamp does That best, Wins !
The other one goes up for sale, period.

Cheers all !

So, what format? LP, CD or streaming?
I'll give it a listen but have found many of his lps were not recorded to audiophile standards.
Actually, in this experiment the limiting factor is generally the amplifier not the preamp, in my experience.
