Here's the story. A while ago I could buy an Spectral DMA 250 and an DMC 30 SL G2 2nd hand at a very attractive price. Unfortunately I did not have enough money for the two of them. So I bought the DMA 250 as it was the better deal of the two.
Two months have passed and I finally saved up enough for the DMC 30 SL G2, but as you might've guessed already it has been sold. So I'm looking at alternatives. I'll be able to buy the DMC 15-SS if I wait for another month. My dealer told me it's better in all areas than the DMC 30 SL G2, except for sounding smaller. The fact that it has no remote bothers me though. Call me lazy but getting up from my chair with every track is too much for an amp of this price category imo.
Anyways after hearing 1001 good things about the Berkeley Alpha DAC and it's nice pricing I got enthusiastic about the idea of running it as my pre amp for my DMA 250. Will this cause problems for my system? As I've been informed that Spectral only goes with Spectral/ MIT. I've got the MIT cabling already. And what sound quality can I expect running the Alpha DAC as my pre amp? Is it anywhere near the two pre amps I mentioned above? Possibly close to the 30 SS (that would be a dream)?
Thanks for reading (and hopefully replying)!
