Strength:

What a great preamp! Natural sound, no distortion at all. I paired it with a pair of Paradigm Reference Active 450LR and a Polk PSW150. What a sound! I got it for 500$ the whole kit. It is worth 10x more. I put a good DAC from SMSL and I listen to music from Deezer HiFi. Impressive sound quality.

Weakness:

Lack of balanced output. Made in china... Why such a quality piece of electronic would be produced in china? At this price (1300$ cad) I woul expect it was built in Canada our USA.

Solid performer

Dynamic sound, full bass, good imaging and seperation. A good performing pre-amp for sure, I've heard better for sure but for the price I paid for it, can't complain.

Equipment used Quad 99 Power amp and Usher CP6311, old Sony CDP
