    ah thanks for that link . good to read . seems to me the mfa v2 is better for less money !

    good to see steves thoughts
    if one must have a passive, I think the British Music First Baby Reference passive is a better deal at much less money. I like it it for its strengths at its price. It does a few things that demonstrate an advantage to transformers rather than resistors for volume attenuation. By contrast, the Bespoke, IMO does not particularly make a case for any advantage of a TVC. It sounds very accurate, it is impressive in build quality, but the sound is not what I search for, particularly at its price. It can be described as neutral, and therefore an improvement from preamps that take away from a system's sound. But, other preamps I have heard can also be VERY close to neutral, while still either adding or preserving the audiophile nuances that are so important to us. lovers of fine sound

    I've had no possibility to compare v1 and v2, but after reading everything I could find about the MFA preamps I was pretty clear on that I wanted a Baby Reference v2. I had the possibility to buy both a second hand v1 Classic and a v1 Baby Reference but in the end opted for a v2 Baby Classic instead. Couldn't afford the Reference at this time and it also felt good to support Jonathan and his work by buying from him. I hope to be able to upgrade one day though, but right now I honestly really don't feel the need as it has already slaughtered all my expectations....
