Received the preamp and got to try it out last night. Simply brilliant sound. I was able to hear a much clearer separation and much better imaging. Soooo much detail at very low volumes and super quiet noise floor.
Just wanted to once again tell you that the preamp sounds fantastic. I have been so far playing music using a Classe SSP 600 preamp which has an analog bypass. While the SSP 600 sounded great, the vta sp13 just takes it to a new higher level. I found older jazz recordings like John Coltrane, Miles Davis etc sounding warm like LP's. Also at a very low volume the detail is astonishing. I guess that is due to the quiet noise floor.
Pretty good considering the Classe SSP 600 cost $6500!
