B&K Preamps
I had a Pro 10MC and in the bypass mode on vinyl it was sweet, on everything else it had no sound impact, it was just a switch.Nice stuff for no money.

experience with Threshold SA/2e or S/500 amps?
Don't get too worried about the S 500, look for the S500II Stasis version. It's Class A to about 50 watts and then turns to Class A/B.Nice amp, accurate, what you put in is what you put out.I sent my Muse 160 II amp that had been doing sub duty fo...
