Just tested my PR&E pre amp with the Stanton 310 B. The PR&E was amazing. I couldnt believe it. The Stanton was also really great, and I'll definitely keep it around, but the PR&E came way out ahead. The engineer who now repairs all PR&E stuff got back to me about this pre amp saying "The Stanton 310B is a Ford, and The PR&E is a Mercedez Benz!" Its incredibly clear, quiet, and with beautiful separation. You can hear every instrument, and I felt like I was hearing my most played records for the first time. Incredible performance out of the ugliest military looking piece of gear I have!!! Broadcast quality has to be clean, and powerful enough to provide a good solid output to the ORBAN processing. It really works, and is not lacking in musicality in any way, built to last and easy to access the inner components..
