Home Theater Pre/Pro
When this Enlightened Audio Designs Ovation Pre/Pro was released in 1998 it was priced at nearly $4500. For a little over 10% of its original cost, one could buy this today and use it as a DAC / stereo preamp and be overjoyed with the results. One look at the internal workings of this unit and you know you're not dealing with a modern, mass marketed piece of equipment. This thing was engineered to sound amazing and it does. If you're interested in extremely high quality digital reproduction without the need for HDMI this is the unit for you.
