Other Notes: "Looking for a rich, full, resonant sound, as opposed to a focused, analytic one? Look no further. "Man, what a natural, refined sound!" was the panel's enthusiastic verdict on the Ypsilon PST 100 Mk II Preamp.
This design extracts the maximum benefits from its step-up and tube-hybrid topology and has that rare ability to convey humans upon the stage. While "musical colorations" are present—no one would dispute that—they are minor in degree and don't get in the way. Instead, they add just the right amount of creature comfort, stuff that was missed when I swapped in alternate preamps .
The PST 100 is also excellent on the objectivist side of the ledger in terms of dynamics, resolution, frequency linearity, low noise, etc.
Here's the scoop: For those who are looking for a little bit of creature friendliness served up along with excellent grades on the audio scorecard, you'd be hard pressed to find better than the PST 100 Mk II at any price." - Marshall Nack, Positive-Feedback
