Hi all, I'm looking to replace my preamp because i need one with a remote.
What i have is an Adcom GFP 555 and a S.A.E PA-10. I like them both (the S.A.E. is a little more flexible) but they aren't remote controllable so i'm looking at a NAD 1600 with remote in good to excellent shape locally for $289 which seems to fit my needs. My question is, is this a decent pre for the money or should i keep looking. $300 is the max i can spend. For those who care or just interested this is what i need in a pre
1. Remote control
2. A good MM/MC Phono section
3. Tuner input or internal tuner
4. 2 full tape loops with 2 way dubbing (Tape 1 > Tape2 / Tape 2 > Tape 1)
5. CD Input
6. At least 1 Line level Aux input
7. Will play nice with my Adcom GFA-555 power amp
Another idea i'm thinking about doing is replacing the volume control in either the Adcom or S.A.E with a remote volume control kit something like this Remote Volume Control Kit has anybody had some experience with doing something like this. All i really need is to be able to control the volume for when the neighbors are beating on my door because the music is to loud.
Any suggestions, comments or ideas would be appreciated.
