Bottom Line:   
Well since there still aren't any reviews for this product, I felt it was time to give skeptics my 3+ year review of this product. If your a music lover who loves warmth, detail and uncompromising linear bandwidth, this is your preamp. Since this preamp operates at a high voltage and has a high output, I have found that it is equally special for a sweet 3.1 home theater setup, due to its linear performance and dual outputs, which means you have output for your amp and sub! And since there are no tone/balance controls you are getting the purest audio path, hearing and feeling the way the original artist intended. Less really is more and Mr. Barnes proves it with this spectacular design. I would recommend mating this preamp to a solid-state amplifier to really experience how wonderful it is. Hook up a good amp, sub and speakers and prepare to be blown away. And on a technical note, get some good interconnects if you don't have any and give the amp a decent amount of time to warm up by playing it. Once its fully warmed up be prepared to spend hours and hours listening with no fatigue, only sweet audio heaven.
