About to purchase M700 from PSAudio
« on: 14 May 2018, 11:37 pm »
I'm about to purchase M700 mono blocks from PS Audio
I have the Stellar Gain Cell DAC with built in preamp. So not sure how it will play together. With my Paradigm Studio 100v.3 series speakers BiWired 8Ω ​​​​​​​

From the Stereophile review:

https://www.stereophile.com/floorloudspeakers/105paradigm/index.html

I haven't said anything about coloration. That's because, despite the variety of program material I auditioned on the Studio/100s, I was never made aware of any persistent problem in this area. This is one neutral speaker.


Seems the Paradigm will reproduce exactly what its fed....good and bad.
Don't see any reason why they shouldn't work well together. I would suggest a tube preamp over the built in preamp in the DAC if you need to warm things up a bit.

Something as inexpensive as a Schitt Saga with 15 day home trial should do it
