    Re: Conrad-Johnson GAT Series 2 Preamplifier with D'Agostino M400?

    Thank you Jerome. I have one of those Jensen transformers but it’s the wrong configuration for me now. It did not seem to have any effect on the sound. I am not ready to do anything right now but thinking ahead. The more I listen to my system right now, the more I realize that it’s the best I’ve had.

    Joe, You can use the balanced cables into the amps and use the se adaptors at the pre amp side.

    Compare the GAT2 with some of the balanced pre amps and hear for yourself which one sounds most musically enjoyable .

    I’m sure the GAT2 is stellar. I may end up with it someday. Maybe throw in an ART 150 for fun
