I'm looking for a tube preamp for around $500. I found a Vincent Audio SA-31 hybrid tube pre for $600, New. I'm looking for something that will go well with my RTi12's, Onkyo M-504 power amp and Jolida 100a. I have an old Adcom gtp-400 pre. It's fairly neutral, but it is not the best pre and pretty sterile. I'm hoping a good tube pre along with the Jolida will help take some of the "digital" out of the cd's.
Most of what i can find used at a decent price is old Dynaco PAS stuff. That is kind of getting too old, for the most part they pretty much have to be rebuilt. I'm looking for one that has a bass, treble control on it. X amount of my cd collection...just not eq'd very well, so it dose need some tweaks on the treble, bass, to make them use full.
Dose anybody know about the Vincent equipment? Do you have any recommendations for something that may be in that price range? This is 2 channel stereo only. Thanks.
