    BMax has very fast, articulate, rich, warm sound (really powerful low end).

    I'm not familiar with the RBI, but I know tonally, it's more versatile, but I don't think it can match the quality and power of the BMax's low end.

    Both seem to be well made.

    www.basstasters.com has clips of Both BBE preamps and a SansAmp BDDI (BDDI and RBI both set flat should sound very similar).
