Indeed that sounds like a great piece of equipment. XLRs, DAC, headphone, normal preamp, and has a remote is an impressive "do it all" box!
I had a brain fart about preamp output earlier, but now I'm thinking more clearly. I don't really need a DAC or headphone amp, and the remote is nice but I'll be at my desk for this sytem. XLRs are great but the RCA can be less than two feet for the installation I'm doing.
I'm hunting on eBay for a pre:
Proton AS 2631, Madrigal Proceed, Onkyo P-301, HK seventeen S, Sony TA/4300, Sony ST-JX401, Yamaha C-80, Yamaha C-45, Denon PRA-1200, ADCOM GFP-555 II, ADCOM GTP-500 II, Carver CT-17, Marantz AV600
Employing the risky maneuver of bidding on more than one auction simultaneously, when I only want to ultimately buy one item. Will make the clicks to order and STF-1 and airmotiv4 or airmotiv5 pair soon.
