Current setup is PC as source>Musical Fidelity V-Link>Musical Fidelity V-DAC>Matrix M-Stage>HD650
Considering the Peachtree Audio Nova Pre as a headphone amp.
Things I'm thinking & considering:
1) Very important: Does the headphone stage utilize the hybrid tube amp? I really want to step into tube amplification.
2) Would this be a substantial upgrade from my current source components?
3) Consideration & main reason I (think) I want the Nova Pre over the Nova: Later down the road I can get the Peachtree 220 Power Amp to drive a nearfield setup for my computer setup. I prefer a separate amplifier over the Nova's integrated amplifier.
Any input appreciated!
