I currently own the DS Jr. Although I love the DSJr I am finding its output to not be enough for my current amplifier. If I put the Attenuator Out the DSJr can drive my amplifier well, but with a lot of buzz as a trade off. With the Attenuator In, the unit is absolutely silent but even at the highest possible level (105 on the Jr) it can only drive it to a ‘comfortable’ level, not a rocking the house level.
So the answer is a pre-amp and the BHK looks very attractive. Problem though is I have limited space and would like to stack the Pre-Amp on top of the DSJr. Checking the Pre-Amp owners manual online it has the following passage “The BHK Preamplifier is part of the PS Audio PerfectWave family and designed to stack on top of each other if they are not placed on separate shelves.”
The question is "what is the PerfectWave family and is the DSJr part of that family?
Also how much space around the unit (units) do I need for sufficient ventilation. If these two are stacked they would have a good 5-6 inches on each side and about 3-4 inches above, with an open front to the cabinet and air holes in the back.
Thanks in advance
