    Are there any users of the BBE B-MaxT (or the regular B-Max)

    I still own an ol' BBE 383 preamp and I was wondering if the newer version sounds better.
    The old one sounds ok, but the EQ was never my thing (I changed some capacitor values to change the EQ points, the sound is more transparent now).
    Also the punch knob sounds a bit weird to me (just not my taste I guess). The BBE process is great though, adds lots of bite. So if there are users of the preamps please give some comments on them.

    I have a bmax (no T), and I like it. Fast response (why I didn't "t"), nice eq, big fat tone...simple to dial in...it does not double well though, which is why I have an eden navigator in the same rack for when I play upright...for slab it kills though....
