Well this is purely hypothetical, as I don't have this kind of coin to spend on a preamp right now. I'm hoping to save up the money over the next year or so, and I'd like to get the research done ahead of time, so that by the time I have the cash I can jump on a good deal when I see it.
My only requirements are that it be tubed and have a remote for volume and hopefully input selection.
Here's my (very) shortlist so far:
- Audio Research LS-15
- Belles 20A or 21A
Other suggestions are welcomed and encouraged.
