Preamp Upgrade


Recommended Posts

I am in a I need a new preamp mode, hopefully for my pocketbook it'll pass, but I doubt it. I currently have an ARC SP11, it sounds good. I want something a little more revealing and convenient.  On the list are VTL 6.5, ARC Ref 6, Brinkmann Marconi, and if it comes out soon Vandersteen's pre. @Richard Vandersteen are you close to releasing yours. 

I have heard the VTL at home and like it. I have the ARC SP11, and figure the Ref 6 can only be better. I have never heard the Brinkmann, but love their TTs which I have the Bardo, the Nyquist gets rave reviews so, I figure he got the Marconi MK II right.

Has anyone heard the Marconi Pre? Thoughts?

The L5-ACC will be shown in near finial form at Axpona this month.  RV

So excited that the pre is nearly ready!  That's great news.  I bet it will match his 5 amps that many of us enjoy 😉.  BTW, the Nyquist mk2 is a freaking awesome DAC.  I've been loving mine for a while now.  I'll be getting the new pre as soon as I can.
