Review: Part Time Audiophile: “The Taurus Pre is definitely the better choice if you have more single ended sources and tend to listen to a more conventional speaker setup. The closest sound I’ve heard to this little box comes from the Neve 5060. That thing goes for eight grand, and its headphone output doesn’t sound nearly as good as the one on Taurus Pre.
This thing is an instant classic. The Taurus Pre should be on your audition list. Period.
I just wish it had one more balanced input. The one it has is just so good.”
