Is it easier to find better value in a used amp or preamp?
I was thinking about a used Parasound HCA w/ 300watts for a few hundred dollars. For a few hundred dollars could I find a pre on par with this? This is hypothetical. I'm not looking for a pre for a few hundred. (I'd love to improve on the Anthem I had though - I thought it sounded NICE!)
I know this is all subjective but do you gain more in going from say a $500 amp to $1000 amp or from going from a $500 pre to a $1000 pre?
Is this universally known?
