Preamp or DAC
Thanks for all the feedback. You have given me a lot to think about. The impedance issue for sure I had not thought about yet. Generally, there seems to be a split decision on preamp first or Dac first. Honestly, when I asked the question I though...

@zlone by the way could you tell me your favorite of the preamps you tried please. Thanks. Looks like Pass 12 maybe?  
Preamp or DAC
Thank you for your input. Interesting thoughts. I had always believed the preamp mad a difference in whatever system I had at the time. I have tried eliminating the preamp and it has not sounded quite right to me. However, I have not tried it with...

Bacch Dsp, True stereo?

One more question. Has anyone ever put the speakers out away from a corner of the room so one speaker is left of a corner and the other is right. In other words they ar diagonal but well out away from each side wall. Would that be feasible?
