Would this be what you would consider to be the perfect "alternate" companion for those of us who have upper-level transformer or tube based preamps?
There's no doubt that Millennia has rightfully earned their place as one of the best transparent pre's out there to date... so, because I already have a nice transformer-based pre amp with "character' ( ADK AP-1), would this be the best thing for me to add to grab the opposite end of that character spectrum, by adding the option of ultra- transparency?
The reason I am asking you, is because I know you really dig Millennia pre's, but also, because I find this to be a very affordable option. I'm going to be adding a transparent pre to my chain in the next few months, and I've been looking at choices.
Up til reading this press release, I thought Millennia was out of my price range - but this model is do-able for me.
How do you think this compares to other similarly priced super-transparent preamps like the Grace, or RME?
