    I love my Vac Master preamp also. There again I think even the Renaissance MkV is darn good for the money. Kevin has no slouches in his Preamp lineup.
    I have a good dealer.

    I auditioned a VAC Master in my system before I added the Select II DAC. If you like natural warmth and a full midrange with tremendous body and finesse than this is your preamp. As musical as it gets.
