Is the volume control of the 752BD the same as the Stream Magic 6, DacMagic Plus and 851C/D?

The 752BD uses a bit reduction volume system to alter the volume output.

This is not the same as the DSP based control system in the DacMagic Plus, Stream Magic 6 and 851C/D which does not degrade the quality of the output at any volume point on the dial.

Bit reduction does degrade the audio signal slightly to achieve the same effect so if you are looking for a device to use exclusively as a preamp, the DSP based units offer higher performance. The 752BD is still an extremely effective preamplifier however.
