Charles and mac48025,I figured that those would be the results.  You both described what differences I heard between my preamp and the mz2.  Joe

Charles,  Looking forward to your thoughts.I'm pretty sure your preamp isn't going anywhere!  I don't know what happened, I wrote a long comparison of the 2 amps and pressed your response and lost the whole page.I'll rewrite home on my mac later
