I have been looking around at some tubed preamps and this "control center" caught my eye. It has the remote and phono, which is what i was hoping for. It is not very local, so is this a good gamble at $1600? I have 2.3tl's and using a Acoustat TNT200(200wpc mosfet) amp. I am not sure if the Sunfire had any upgrades like the PS. It does appear to have an iec socket, instead of a fixed cord, so I can use my own powercords :) I believe the gain in the linestage is 12db? If so that should be low enough. I do not like to be blasted away a 10 oclock . Is this a decent preamp and is the above price good?
