I’m after buying advice for a preamp. Not necessarily specific models, but about pros and cons of them having certain features. My only minimum requirements is that they have a HT Bypass as I use it in a single location, trigger out also to turn on the amplifier, and be placed in an enclosed shelf (it’s what I have to work with...) A list of HT bypass I found http:// http://www.audiophile.no/en/articles-tests-reviews/item/426-amplifiers-with-processor-input Options to consider: - purely analogue preamp - preamp with built in dac - digital preamp with dsp e.g. Anthem STR - tubes or solid state e.g. Elektra Pnyx, Musical Fidelity M8 My speakers are Martin Logan 60XT and a Paradigm Sub-12. I’m primarily a Roon user and have a Gieseler Gross DAC. Still some CD/SACD playing. Looking into vinyl at some stage. I’m after something built to last, and so I’m a little wary of technology options which are changing rapidly e.g new dac chips, streaming limitations etc. In contrast (and opposition?) it would be good to reduce the box/device count. Apologies in advance if my question is too broad.
