I’m currently evaluating the Stellar Phono and have determined that to get its full benefit, I need to configure a stereo preamp with HT bypass. Since I am running fully balanced, I have found an FAQ that states that the GCD can be used in that way by fixing the gain of one of its inputs. Has anyone here done this and could give their feedback? Were there any gotchas you encountered? I use a universal remote, so can manage the multiple component switches required.
