OK, here is a little update: I found an Audio Control Richter Scale 2 for a really good price. Plugged into the second set of outputs on the Sunfire pre and then plugged the PT2400 into the low side of the Richter Scale for my subs. All I can say is SWEET. After getting the DQ-20's hooked up I went from the 600x2 back to the TFM-75 and the 3-D part of the sound stage came alive. Just received some USN-CEP 7308's, put them in the 490t, Seimens ECC88's in V2 & V3 and an ECC88 Mullard in V1. This setup is crystal clear, 3-D, transparent as glass and liquid smooth. Im having fun with this preamp to say the least :lol: :lol:

I wanted the Richter Scale 3 but the prices are crazy for that thing. I have had an audio control eq for a long time and have always like it.
