Classé Audio Delta Pre Preamplifier/Processor and Delta Stereo Amplifier Review
March 7, 2021 § Leave a comment
The ability to adjust the gain in such small increments with the Pre is a strong selling point. For classical music in particular, there’s a correct playback level determined by the recorded perspective. Playing a recording with a mid-hall perspective too loudly in an effort to force an immediacy that isn’t there is a mistake; setting the volume too low for a recording made with the conductor’s aural viewpoint is likewise a recipe for failure. How many times has the “correct” gain setting been between two clicks on a stepped attenuator? That’s unlikely to happen with the Delta Pre.
