Let's get off the Portico vs SSL comparison. I brought it up but still stand by that comment. Some agree, some don't. So be it. When I shot them out side by side with about 10 others in 500 series format they seemed in the same zone in the standard setting. This was the 511 vs SSL however. I have noticed my 5012 sounds a bit different from the 511, maybe because it's one of the original units.

I will tell the original poster however, preamps are like cars. You have to test drive them.
