I just watched a video review of the 789, and it claimed the Azure amp was far superior.
This is the same dude who claimed and swore on head-fi that I am NWAVGUY. If he spent more time learning about audio science and engineering, and less time on expanding his imagination, he may have a useful of thought worth listening to.

The preamp part is superb except for the power supply noise. But the part of the headphone amplifier looks not as good as a THX product.

Now I understand his whole aversion when pressed for scientific testing of some sorts over the comments section in his videos. Pretty sad really..

Thanks Wolf. Impressive but is there a lot of people these days in the need of a preamplifier?
I believe that not everyone needs a preamp, but I can be sure that there is still a market for preamps.
I use a pre-amp solely because it affords multiple XLR outputs per channel and has very low distortion. I need the additional XLR output for stereo subwoofers. Passive splitters are a no no and active splitters (or at least ones I have seen) do not spec anywhere near as well as audiophile preamps.
