Hello, I'm new here. I live in Austin. I was looking through the gallery
at the meet from may 2008,and noticed the D-sonic amp in next to
last picture of the gallery. Can whoever owns it tell me alittle bit about
it, what is the input voltage ? I considering getting one, but wondering
if I could use it with a passive preamp to drive some magnepans ?
Thanks in advance, David

The input impedance of its ICE power modules is 10K, so it prefers the higher output impedance of an active preamp. I have used a 10K Mod Squad Line Drive passive pre with it, but I prefer its sound with a tube preamp. This is a very inexpensive 525 w/ch amp (1kw into a Maggie's 4 ohms), and it sounds very good for the price. I prefer it to the lower priced class AB amps I've heard like Rotels, NAD's, etc, especially when used with a tube preamp. Let me know if you plan to be at the Nov 1 meeting and I'll bring it so you can hear for yourself.
