It seems to me that a true pre-amplifier is designed to be transparent unless you're using a tube preamp like the Cary above. The P5 does look nice and the fact that you can adjust the crossover for the mains is a plus (unlike my 2100 but 80Hz works just fine) along with the built-in DAC and supposedly better phono section.
