Thanks for posting.
I will have to wait for his event at Paragon in early November since I am skipping RMAF this year too.

Great Innovative always has their special events it on a weeknight when I work. At least Ears Nova does their events on Fridays late AM and PM.

Wouldn't question #1 be hard to analyze & narrow down in itself without some A/B process? Especially if it was mated only to a pair of his amps?

Just saying.....

Best

I don't disagree. It is almost impossible to isolate a single components impact on a systems sound especially when it is not your own system. I was guess I am just looking for some general comments on the events sound.

I am having a hard time talking myself into considering any pre-amp in that price range. I would prefer to allocate funds to other components. That said I did not think that the Momentums would knock my socks off either.
