What the Ref 40 does that no other preamp I’ve heard does is reproduce instruments and vocalists with a three-dimensional “solidity” (the very meaning of the word “stereo,” BTW) that is simply mind-boggling (and unequaled in my experience). Instruments are so rooted in space, so solidly “there,” and the stage is so clear and orderly, it is almost like you’re listening to a three-channel system playing back three-channel mastertapes—that “phantom” center channel is that much less phantom. Trust me: The difference is that dramatic.
