    Default Two Preamps . . . which one?

    Cary SLP-03 - $1900 - Full Dealer Warranty

    or

    BAT VK-i3xSE - $2,000 - from 1st Owner.

    I'm worried about buying a used product from a guy with a small rep, plus I'm not sure about the price.

    What'dyaguys think?

    I kinda feel that way as well, but my instincts tell me the BAT would wipe the floor with it.

    I'm not sure which one I would choose. I have listened to BAT in the past and loved it. The Cary I have not spent enough time to give you good advise.

    On a side note , hows the sub? Are you loving it???

    In the BAT ad, it says 'not a mark on it', but there appears to be a scratch of sorts near the power inlet? Could just be the pic. Just pointing it out for ya.

    If you can believe it, I have not heard it yet. I am waiting on the necessary cables and just recently finished my last law school exam. I'll be working on it later.
