I've been considering selling my Phoenix and upgrade to a Leben CS300 to use with my LCD-2 and modded Denons.
I use it as a preamp as well though and I really like having a remote since I sit quite far away from the amp.
Today, I have a Paradisea+ DAC, so that needs to be upgraded anyway, but if I go for the Leben I need a DAC/Pre
with remote (I'm assuming it wouldn't be a problem to connect the Leben to a volume controlled output?).
So, does anyone here run a similar setup, or have you tested a DAC/Pre with your Leben that you would recommend?
