B&W Preference 5
* For how long have you been using it?
3 months

* What thing do you like most/least about it?
Plus: The sound quality, clarity of sound!

Least: Too much bass for my taste. I do not know if it's because the previous owner has pushed it too much, but once I put 2 pairs per column, the bass is really too present. I had to reduce the NAD amp I have.
* Did you try many other models before getting this one?
Infinity Reference 81 MKII, B & W DM 603 S2, PA equipment (JBL, Mackie, The Box, etc.).

I think the DM603 S2 is a little too low for the treble, but like I said for the bass, they are really too high on the preference 5. The mids are a bit different on both, but I think it's all a matter of taste. Compared to infinity, B & W are clearly above!
Attention, as always is the amp can do alot to vary the record!
I tried on NAD amp (Nad C320BEE Nad and T761)
I wanted to listen on a Pioneer amp, but I quickly abandoned it. It's too horrible!
* What is your opinion about the value for the price?
I have paid 120 euro, so the value is very good I think!
* Knowing what you know now, would you make the same choice?
Yes, but really still too much bass ... But like I said, it can be a problem for the pair I have! The filter may be in poor condition!
