Bottom Line:   
I waited until I had the unit more than a year to write this review. This preamp is extremely neutral and it's sound will be dependent on the equipment that it is used with. A previous reviewer mentioned that this preamp's weakness was that it "could extend the decays a bit". When I first got the preamp, I agreed with that. I don't agree any longer. I upgraded my cables and cd player and the decays were there in spades. I use a power conditioner in my system and that blackened the background even more and increased the air around the instruments.

This preamp does it all. Just be ready to surround it with top notch gear all around to get the full benefit of this unit. Wherever you cut corners will be exposed. Every time you improve another part of the system, this preamp will reward you with more clarity, inner detail, broader soundstage and 3 dimensionality. Use balanced interconnects.

Bottom Line:   
One of the best pre amps from arc coming in just behind the ref1 (3000 cheaper). This, a solid state product from a well astablished tube component co. brings the gap between these two worlds closer than ever. This preamp will reveal what ever your other components will alow through. So be carful in matching components becouse as it will reveal all the resolution and fine detail you throw at it , it will also reveal your systems flaws....
