Ihave a solid processor to mate with my Linn speakers and I think finally I have reach the "diminishing returns arena" of sorts in that I dont feel the upgrade bug biting as much as it did when I had Def Techs and HK. Happy as I am, I still feel that I am behind the times on surround options especially for Dig cable/DBS viewing. With all the hype about PL2, I am interested to join the lucky listeners but I am wondering if EAD will upgrade existing prepros to EX/ES/PL2 to stay current and competetive. Has anyone upgraded their EAD preamp with PL2 abilities if able? I dont want to have to sell this preamp, but if there is something I can get that can beat it on sound and features for under $1200, I'll think of selling it. I dont like dated pieces too much, I feel like I am missing out. thanks!
