I bought this as an upgrade from some entry level Project preamps I was using with a vintage Thorens.I had a discussion with Analogue Seduction about it who said that the difference would not be massive but it would possibly reveal a quieter background.I am pleased to report that I have found that it has been a worthwhile purchase which has enhanced my listening pleasure and I recommend this preamp.
