Ok, maybe my last thread title wasn't descript enough. I'm caught between buying a B&K Reference 20 preamp or a Parasound AVC-1800. The Parasound is cheaper and has 6 channel inputs. The B&K supposedly is the superior unit as far as sound quality goes. Will I really miss multi-channel SACD or DVD-A? I mean, I sort of like just listening to music in 2 channels. I think it's the way it's supposed to be played. But there are a few DVD-A/SACD releases that I'd like to get, including the Dark Side of the Moon SACD. Is there any way to listen to these multi-track DVD-A/SACD's in stereo without losing all that other channel info? Has anyone heard both units and can say how they compare?
