Hi All, I have a bit of a dilemma. I've had the NAD T153 preamp for about eight months. Although I was always delighted as to how my SACD's and CD's sounded via analog connection, I was always slightly disappointed with the T163's digital performance for DVD's, whether it be DD or DTS. I recently picked up a Denon AVR-2805, and I'm much happier with its digital/DVD performance as a Pre/Pro (especially DD EX and DTS ES), but the NAD is clearly superior for analog...warmer, richer, and deeper overall. I still have the NAD, and I was contemplating using a 5.1 switcher (like the Zektor MAS3) to switch between the two preamps depending on whether I watched movies or listened to CD/SACD. The only thing is that the NAD is a bit much and takes up quite a bit of space. My alternative is to sell the NAD and possibly get the new Audio Refinement Pre5 (or maybe try to find a Sony TA-P9000ES) 5.1 analog preamp, or simply keep the NAD and only use it for analog. Argument for the NAD: Probably won't sell for much more than the cost of a new AudRef Pre5, so I'd end up losing out on 100's of dollars. Argument for the Pre5: Simpler, smaller, and no digital do-dads anywhere to possibly get in the way. Any thoughts on this? I emailed a tech person at Zektor, and he said that using the Mas3 to switch between preamps into the same power amp is totally safe. Thanks in advance.
