Did I screw up??? C2700 vs c49

How much better is the c2700 over the c49? Will be running two mc611s. And is the tube preamplifier reliable? I can still return the C49 just bought brand new and never powered up yet. Running B&W 801N

Thanks Matt


I have a C2300 with an MC500 and it’s a stellar tubed preamp! You’ll do fine fine with the C49.

Thanks guys!! So my set up now is C2300, MC611s, 720 power quest, Hi FI Rose 130 running  B&W 701 N. Can't wait to hear her!! Still waiting on some cables and few components.  


That was quick. I have heard both the 2700 and C49. I thought both systems sounded pretty good. With the B&W the tubs probably help smooth out the highs a touch. 

@skydog25 How do you like your RS130? I was looking at the 150 but want to stay with separates and just saw earlier today that Rose has the 130 transport. Looks really nice. My other thought was an AURALiC Aries.
