    Default recommendation for a relatively cheap remote preamp?

    Hey all,

    I got my system set up with the adcom amp and using the Luxman receiver as a preamp, but have one minor issue so far. That is, the Luxman does not have a remote control. So, I'd like to get some suggestions on a cheaper remote-controlled preamp. Anyone?

    Thanks,

    Noah

    oh shoot, my bad brotha. Didn't see that part. Check Ebay though for them...I've been "inches" from buying this for a couple years..

    My buddy has a Nakamichi CA-5 pre that works great in his two channel rig. It can be found on ebay for about 100.00 or so. Sometimes cheaper. There is one that is ending in about an hour (looks a little worn though), and doesn't have a remote. If you have to have a remote, then the CA-7 is a solid pre.

    edit: Guess I should of read your posting all the way through. Looks like you already have one w/ out a remote......

    This should be interesting to hear what people recommend here as I am looking as well...

    I am thinking of Rotel RC1070 or getting a RA1060, using the preamp section while using the amp for a zone 2....I have been using my X202ES cd player directly into my amp and want to use my modified Music Hall instead...

    What about that TEAC integrated unit that had preouts?
    System 1: Onix Rockets 750 Sig. Ed., Rotel RC 1070, Rotel RB 1080, Music Hall MMF CD25 w/627opamps

    System 2: LSi15, Marantz SR8400, Rotel 1080, RM6800 (C&S), Yamaha: 2300 Univ. DVD, CDC-625RS.

    System 3: LSi7, Yamaha SW215, HK 230, Elite DV-45A; Sony C445.

    System 4: RTi100, Onkyo TXSV717Pro, Monarchy/Sonic Impact Hybrid, Yamaha CD.

    I have an Adcom GTP500 I may consider parting with if you are interested. Its a nice preamp - plenty of inputs, built in tuner, class A circuitry etc. The nicest part is a special loudness circuit for low volume listening which emphasizes the notes that matter.
