Hi George

Working on putting the first prototype together so I can audition it.

Interesting news (BP18) James!

Can the muting circuit be revisited for the new model so balanced XLR users don't get that pop on mute/unmute?

Hi

I have the BP17 in one of my setups and no pop?

I wrote about it here:

Maybe there's some variance between units but others chimed in and the unit at my dealer (Audioshop Kanata) does it too.

HI Stefan

OK I will look into it - what amplifier are you using?

Hi James,

Thank You! 

I'll really be interested in how the "BP18"will fit into a streaming setup.

 I assume there will be a polarity reverse feature on this new model ? :thumb:

I would venture it is as I recognize the number. I'm not a regular poster here so take my input as you will...

As it's on Audiogon it would be in $US, never seen that unit sell that low in my native Canada for our Canuck bucks

With this preamp can one use the variable balanced output to connect to an amp and also use the variable single-ended output for a subwoofer?  That is, are they both active?

Do the unbalanced outputs produce the same level of output at the balanced ones or are they 6 dB or so lower?

Same but adjust the levels at the subwoofer.

This is good to know and rather timely for me. Even though a high pass filter on smallish main speakers is beneficial when using a subwoofer, I was troubled by the idea of putting everything through a rather old Velodyne ULD-18 controller. Using my Bryston speakers full range with the sub crossover set to the correct frequency solves the problem.
