For a long time I have just connected my DSD Jr dac directly to my mono blocks. Never had a reason to argue with myself about that, and with streaming, the need for multiple inputs are very limited.
Now, with all forum threads (and even Paul changing his mind ) I have considered to try a BHK Pre out in my system. Before that however I have some questions I have not managed to get answered anywhere else in the forum, but bear with me if I have missed them out anyway…
I have never been a tube fan, and I know almost nothing about the topic, and I am not really looking forward to the BHK tubes as such - even though I understand that they might have the most substantial impact on SQ. But, why is there such lengthy discussions about replacing the tubes? Are the ones delivered not good? If so, why would PSAudio put anything less than optimal in their product?
2nd question is about noise. Those of you using the DSD+BHK pre combo, are you using the output from DSD with our without the attenuator? Without it there is this small background noise, and with the BHK pre added, is that also amplified to an irritating level? Or how does that work? What would be the best combination to minimise background noise and still getting the best S/N ratio? (And the best ooommpph)
Hope someone clever can clear out my questions, and make me hit the buy button later this Summer.
