just out of interest how well does the mez B1 fair as a pre for the F5? It seems as if the F5 needs a lot of gain is the mez B1 sufficient for it?

Depends on your source and speakers. The B1/DCB1 "only" provides unity gain, in other words, no voltage amplification.

There are enough guys saying they are OK with their B1+F5 system gain given their listening habits, room, and speakers sensitivity. And they enjoy the combo as very synergistic for tone etc. I still believe they need +10 to 15dB to hear the dynamics even better.

If source and/or speakers are above the norm for output then its a different ballgame indeed.

A quick search suggests that the F5 needs about 4V input for full output, so given that most sources nominally have 2V line level output, a B1+F5 combo may work in some cases.

Edit: With a voltage gain of 15.3dB=20*log(x) and a maximum output voltage of +/-20V (from manual), the amplification factor x=10^(15.3/20)=5.82 and therefore the input voltage required to drive it to full output should be 20V/5.82=3.42V.

That is why I say +10dB for line gain would come handy. There are many people who don't listen loud on the other hand, but I still feel it boosts dynamic inflections better especially if the speakers are not above 90dBSPL/W.
