A somewhat unusual request for PrePro help
Thanks for the info on the Aragon. I did not discount it from my consideration, really. I just had not looked into it very much. I will explore this further.

I understand your position, Sean. I've done some further research into the postings here, and there are more than a few people who have tried this and not been happy. So I have to consider that it is a difficult thing to do, at best. I think my fi...

Jeff, I have NO intention of getting rid of anything of mine. Even if I ultimately replace my EAD transport / DA with the Marantz 8400, I will just box away the EAD stuff. Same for the Bedini 866.I have been thinking the same thing about the cente...

Yeah, my wife would not be too happy about turning our den into an equipment obstacle course! (g)

Okay. Let's say I go along with this (BTW, Beemer, I see from your other posts that you have quite a 2 channel system from the looks of it). My Bedini preamp does not have a unity gain output, so unless I either run it fully cranked or make some k... 
A somewhat unusual request for PrePro help
Beemer, Sean, I would love to have two systems, but as I said in my top post that is a bit of a problem. My high end system has to almost literally be assembled every time I want to listen to it. I just don't have the room anymore to support two i...

Oh, one more thing, Jdevine: can you describe the rest of your system? 
A somewhat unusual request for PrePro help
Yes, EAD comes up quite often in the forum's discussions about good 2 channel performance. Can you characterize the difference in music reproduction between the 8000Pro and the 8800Pro? I may be able to get an 8000Pro used for the kind of money I'... 
Best software to burn a CD from a computer.
I concur with EAC for ripping. Nero is good for audio CD burning, but I also like Feurio. I tend to use it more for audio than Nero.
