Bottom Line:   
I just replaced my Denon Avr-5700 that was handling preamp duties for a Used Encore from ebay. I know I made the right decision. The soundstage is wide and open sounding and movies can really sound viceral. Bass Mgmt. is flexable and is almost transparent. I would recomend pairing this preamp with some good acurate amps from Classe' Aragon or McCormack. I would also recomend using full range speakers for the best overall imaging and performance. From other perspectives it is beautifull and incredibly hard to tweak becuase of it's astetic prowess. You will get almost intimate with the remote so tell your wife or GF that you would like to start bringing others into your realtionship. If you lose the remote you are screwed. I have had problems with ground loops but after awile I was able to taim the problem. It's not the best that I have ever heard but for what I paid for it it's more that I could or should expect. If you get a chance to buy one for a good deal I would snatch it up, You won't regret it.

Bottom Line:   
just a brief review with an update. AS a satisfied customer and a proud owner od ead, i wanted to let everybody know that ead has revised their theatermaster series reently. and the new one no longer has problem previously assoiciated with theatermaster. no more display whining, no more pops or click. The revise TM2k (theatermaster 2000) has new display with black background and blue lettering. high contrast and viewable from distance. this is the best display available currently. remote has also been replaced with a new one. half touchscreen and half buttons. better ergonomics. and retain the EAD famous high quality audiophile sound.
