After using a DMP SACD transport and DSD DAC in my system for a few months and being utterly beguiled by their sound, I’m contemplating swapping my Music First Audio Baby Reference V2 passive magnetic pre amp for a BHK pre amp.
Both pre amps are similarly priced and very high end but I suspect sound very different. Can someone here who has heard both in the flesh share their impressions of the differences in sound between the amps?
I’m also eager to learn how much power, if any, the BHK pre amp consumes in standby mode? The DMP transport and DSD DAC each draw power 24/7 (which I already feel guilty about) and I’m conscious of not wanting to waste any more energy given the seemingly precarious state of the climate. Thanks.
