tube pre amp and Krell FPB 600
Are you having a problem? I would definitely turn the amp off before the preamp and wait for the preamp to warm up before turning the amp on. The 3 LEDs on the front of the amp will signify if there is a problem. Since your preamp is not balanced,...

New PrimaLuna versus used Audio Research preamp?

Abery true. But the reviewers love it. And you can use a separate DAC and preamp if you are so inclined.

Why dealers disparage certain products?
