    Please, and this applies to everyone, when challenging and/or addressing someone you think is wrong, use language unlikely to irk or cause offence to the person concerned, as you'll achieve nothing but start an argument, and most likely not of the constructive kind either.

    So, people, in future.........THINK before you type! Cheers

    Hi Marco
    My post was referring to other forms of attenuation - when there are many, not being considered by Jez,
    But take your point to be civil,... will do my best

    Cheers / Chris

    Sorry Chris, that's not in the spirit of what you've just promised.

    How would you respond if Jez had directed that at you? [Rhetorical question, btw]. If you guys have a problem with each other, please take it to PM, where you can 'go at it' until your heart's content, but it won't be allowed on the open forum.

    Let's 'cool the jets', folks, and get back to discussing the topic of the thread, by playing the BALL, not the man. Anything other that will simply be removed without further warning.

    Ah it's working again... At least the temporary lock meant I saw the moderators comments and cancelled my "both barrels, loaded for bison" riposte

    So as the original OP I feel guilty of opening a thread that potentially gets locked. I ought to have known better.

    No seriously guys it is all very interesting and educational. Lots of the discussion seems to revolve around the electrical characteristics of preamps. Unfortunately I did not pay too much attention when I was being taught this stuff at school (no doubt as I was paying too much attention to the girls in the class).

    So, what would be the "perfect" preamp? Or is it the case that some preamps work in some situations and other in other situations? How would one go about navigating what potentially is a "good" preamp from the specs alone? Or at least narrow things down a bit as clearly it is not possible to audition every preamp.

    Edward, what passive pre-amp do you use at the moment? Sorry if you already said somewhere way back.
