I'm using a Parasound Model 2100 in my 2.1 channel computer setup. So far, I've been very pleased with it, though it is my first mid-fi preamp. I haven't used its HT bypass function yet, but will be sometime in the next few years as I move into a larger space that will allow a multichannel setup.
My only quibble (and it's a small one), is that the volume knob feels a little cheap. However, I use a universal remote 95% of the time, so it's hardly a disappointment to me.
We're killing our enemies faster than we can make them.
