    Hi Joe,

    No I had too many preamps so I had to sell it.
    Typical Manley sound. Very dynamic and juicy. Explosive and extraverted. But not the last word in supreme definition and refinement.
    The radio remote is a super cool feature.
    The headphones output is fabulous.
    I prefered this preamp to my Mc C1000P.
    But I found it inferior to the Shindo Giscours and imho it is also inferior to the CJ Premier 17LS and the GAT.
    May be more punchy than the 17LS I guess, but not as refined.
    Hope this helps !
