I am looking for a 2 channel preamp w/ HT bypass. I would like to stay under1500.00? I did see a poster rec the citation 7.0? Is it available? What do yall think?
The Citation 7.0 is a fabulous analog preamp but is no longer in production (alas). Actually it is a multichannel analog preamp (no DD/DTS) that will sound better than most of the high priced pre/pros out there now with surround music. It works great as a 2 channel preamp via its bypass setting. I believe one is available now at Audiogon for $400. Read reviews here (rated 5/5):
Thanks for yalls thoughts, so....if i wanted to add video -matching 1 of these units to a DVO vp30 would be nice? Am I seeing this right...would I be getting the best of both worlds...great 2 channel along with video connections?
