Like many, I've been following this thread for sometime as I researched amps from Yaqin, Mingda, Dared etc...also comparing el34 to kt88 to 300b.....I'm pretty much researched out! I'm hoping for some clarification regarding some members here that have been using the MS-12B tube preamp between their cd/dvd and the MS-20l. Since the MS-20l already has a preamp, why the need for the added pre and what do you gain by it?
My search has lead me to either the MS-20l or the MS-300c. The amp will be paired with Tekton Lores. As I'm looking for a detailed, open soundstage, I'm not sure which amp will provide this. Also, I'm not sure if the low output(9.5w) of the MS-300c will be a good match with the Lores. Looks like.....more research!
Thanks and look forward to contributing to the forum.
