I get the 2 channel bit. However, that fails to consider that due to a lack of space / rooms / budget and the increasing adoption of home theatre, there are many who use their gear primarily for 2 channel listening and secondary as a home theatre. The home theatre bypass feature in a preamp would be crucial for such users. I view this as a missed opportunity as this would be a deal breaker for such consumers, regardless of the price.
