What would you like to see changed or added?
As I mentioned, the one thing I would have liked was having more than just 50, 80 hz XO in the BM, as my mains are designed for 70.
Something like DAC can be added. Like the AudioQuest DragonFly.

According to some on this forum, all DACs are the same, so spending more than $25 is a waste of money...which I disagree with.
Of coarse, that fits right in with all amps are the same...something I also disagree with.
As for using the P7, besides its quality sound, I really like its simplicity. If any given recording has a poorly balanced output, either L~R or F~B, then its just an adjustment of a click or two. Or if you want to adjust the bass output on the fly, same thing. And there are two different sub settings; one for stereo and one for MC. It also has treble/bass tone controls (which I do not use) but they can be taken out of the circuit with one click.
My HK AVR, on the other hand, have to go deep into some damn menu to make changes, for anything!
And as my P7 is on its way back to me from SF, I certainly will not be buying any other pre, as it has cost me about $700, mostly in shipping cost, to get it repaired. Thanks to some ass up in Quito, where I sent it last July to be repaired, which was about $100 total (shipping/labor) only to find in March he never made the repair. When the techs in SF opened it up, the original chip in the RS232 circuit was installed, the very part he was suppose to have replaced.
