I am thinking of buying a BHK PreAmp, but because I do not live in the USA, I cannot take advantage of that wonderful “try it and see if you like it” approach and this for me when done is an 8k+ CDN purchase. (come on Paul, we are on the same darn continent)
Will I be wowed is my question.
- This preamp will be replacing a Sonic Frontiers Line 1 Preamp that has been upgraded about every 5 years (Parts ConneXion) to be the best it can be for over 20 years now, so yes, it is old but it is venerable. (Paul always speaks so highly of Sonic Frontiers)
- BHK Preamp would be joining my system whose basic configuration contains a pair of Focal Sopra 3’s and a pair of Bryston 7B3 Monoblock amps. This combination of speaker and amplifier (for 2 channel only) in my estimation needs to be “warmed up” a bit but I do like the quickness, clarity and blackness of the speaker/amp combination.
- I have tried other ‘solid state’ only preamps as of late but I think I enjoy a tube front end better.
