No idea, as I've said before after turntable, cart, and speakers, the electronics is way down the list for me.

DBT tests on turntables, etc. are simply too cumbersome for me to bother.

Yes, I am very creative, SY. I can actually think for myself. '-)
But what interests me is WHY people, convinced that almost all electronics sounds essentially the same, are here in this thread? Aren't there better things to do? Perhaps make the ideal preamp for $100 or so in parts, and a little labor. Save the world in that way.

It's probably been done. Didn't save the world, it's a solved problem as far as sonics. Fashion is a moving target and I pretend no expertise there- that's your department.

..........
To use this place as "Speaker's Corner" to broadcast THEIR views? Judging by the number of posts and number of hits, this seems to be the place with the largest audience.
Arguing with authority (you, John ) for the argument's sake might be another reason

Scott, have you seen the movie you mentioned a while ago.
I can recommend it.
I live there, you know.

Cheers

I've found composers, by and large, to be among the least critical, particularly of orchestral recordings of the "spotlit" variety, the death of a thousand microphones and a proactive recording engineer. As long as she or he can hear what they wrote everything is o.k.

When Keith Johnson recorded the Moscow Phil for Sheffield, the musicians were concerned as they were accustomed to having a microphone per stand, or thereabouts. How in the world were they going to be heard? Concerns turned to smiles when they heard playback in the control room.
