...for a tubed pre.Cheap.
Was going to add a tube buffer to my sonos, but I think a tubed pre may be a better avenue to go down. We had some nice options go threw the FM that I should have jumped on. So far looking to hunt up a Cary AES, Dodd anything, Dared 2000a, in that order of preference. Any other suggestions ? Tube only gents, SS need not apply. There is a Dared on the 'gon now for under 4 bones, but that Cary is calling my name in my sleep.....if I can find one.
Also, since I run a 2 channel/ht combo system, is the best way to incorporate the pre by using a Y cable from the amp so I can bypass the receiver in 2 channel ? Or just go analog outs of the pre to the in's on the receiver ? Kinda want to take the receiver completely out of the equation so I'm thinking the Y cable is the only option there. Any suggestions for a decent Y cable too ? The mass marketed stuff does nothing for me.....something of quality is what I seek. Thanks in advance for any suggestions.
