The YBA and Goldmund are two excellent choices. You should listen to them both in your system and make a decision based on your preference. You've already got other good components. I think the solution is pretty simple. As stated by Adsal above, you can then work on fine tuning with cables. As far as the Bryston with the YBA preamp, I am surprised by that recommendation, as they seem to me so different in nature, one being smooth, warm and relaxed, and the other, the Bryston, fast, detailed and upfront. Maybe there is a balance there, I just don't think I would go that way.
Salut Diakanov! With all due respect for all the above, and if U like yr YBA 2 pre and yr. JM Lab Minis, partner with YBA 2HC rather than the Mimesis. This is MHO, having heard cross combination, pre & power, from the two brands. The other way round (mimesis pre, YBA 1/Passion) works well -- but, why bother? Yr YBA electronics are excellent and match JM lab well (it is rumoured that Mr Andre --YBA-- uses Utopias too...).
