Just discovered some of the inputs on the BAT are busted!!!! Motha-!@#ka . . . I am serious! Guess which ones?????? The effing balanced inputs!!!!!! I was so pissed, but now I am good.
Called up Chase Visa, they reversed the charge and told me to send the preamp back to the sender. How great is that? It was that simple!
No wonder dishonest people find it so easy to scam people.
Guess my new pre is a Cary SLP-03 until I find something better.
I suppose I should also say I called the seller and he hung up on me . . . that's about what made me see red. But, now he's the one with his finger up his butt.
