So I am in need of a pre-amplifier as I upgrade my system. I have Revel M126be and a Bryston 4B-ST amplifier on the way. But I havent decided on the pre-amp yet. Need something to pair well with the speakers and amp.
So far I need:
dual subwoofer outputs(i can split or chain if I the choice is "better")
12v trigger outputs
multiple analog inputs(4 minimum given current setup with phono and dac external)
XLR inputs and outputs
I currently run an external dac, nor is a pre-amp for phono. so a dac/phono in the system isnt a big concern. but ill probly get 1 or both.
My short list has become:
Emotiva XSP-1(gen2 only)
Parasound P5(no display and cheaper than the others)
NAD C 165BEE
