Ha ha, I see them as misconceptions and verified, to myself, that they are others' misconceptions. If that makes sense.
The biggest one being that the DB680 is flat with all controls at noon. It is far from it, and my measurements show it (at least for mine).
Another is that it is hifi or transparent, but it is far from it.
Edit: this kind of sounds like I am bashing it, but I dont mean it that way. I love this pre. It is just right for the combination of features and tones I want.
But it is not hifi or transparent in the regards of a $6k studio pre. However, as far as tube bass preamps go, it is "crem de la crem". Best description would be "old school hifi".
