I have begun my long and extensive search for new amplifiers to add to my sound system, and I have a few questions concerning the PS Audio line of products. My introduction to this wonderful company was my recent purchase of the DSJ, and besides an incredible sonic addition to my system, the responsiveness and service of the staff (Kevin Jackson especially) has been exemplary.
Currently I am using the following setup:
DSJ -> Primaluna Dialogue Integrated -> Martin Logan Montis (20-500 Wpc at 4ohms impedance, 91 dB/2.83 volts/meter sensitivity)
I want to replace the Integrated Amp while using my DSJ as the preamp/source since I only listen to digital. Would the BHK line match well with my speakers? What would the advantage be in getting the 300s over the 250, would the 300s just be overkill and overwhelm my speakers? Would the chain of the DSJ -> BHK -> MLs work to begin with eventually adding a preamp along the chain? Any thoughts about the m700s in my chain?
One of the features I really love about the DSJ is the wake from standby just by selecting a song from Roon. One of the other amps that I was considering is the Parasound JC-1 and they have a feature that wakes from standby once music starts playing. This would be a nice feature on the BHK since I try to make my systems around the house hassle-free for my wife to use.
I also was reading about some issues with the fault protection triggering due to overheating. I am sure it has been resolved by now, but I wasn’t able to find a definitive answer.
