    Reminds me of a pal I used to have called skanky Al. Years ago now when BMWs were still quite rare cars on the roads he bought a knackered one for 100. It had almost no paint left on it and was literally held together with gaffer tape. Nevertheless he would always wave cheerfully to the other BMW drivers he encountered on his travels.

    That's funny, reminds me of a friend who bought a scrap Harley Sportster, covered in grease and barely run, smoking exhaust, but as soon as he bought it he tore the sleeves out of his jackets and always acted as if the bikers were after him! Fancied himself a real gangster with his $500 Harley.

    Definitely worthy of consideration. I've seen a few Krell preamps on Audiogon at some reasonable prices. One that was on my watch list was the Krell Phantom, a really nice looking preamp, modern looking and highly rated. And less than $2,500 USD. I can't recall exactly. The depreciation of audio gear is amazing. Before the internet used gear was hard to find, but now I wouldn't dream of buying new. Most used gear is one third to one forth it's new price. Personally I can't imagine what a $7k preamp sounds like? But due to depreciation I may soon find out.

    Perhaps I should mention I have FPB 200 the 300 is certainly better especially with difficult loads Martin Logan, Wilson etc a friend had FPB 300 with Martin Logan SL3 and B&W 802's and Wilson Alexandria's although I think he swapped the 300 to 600 monoblocks for the Alexandria's. The sound for me with Sonus Faber Alecta Amators is all you hope for, detailed warmer side of neutral loads of control and slam but above all, musical and emotional, and I have very broad tastes in music !!
