    Default More pre advice please

    OK, my last post was absurdly written. I've made things simple here.

    I'm going to be purchasing a preamp very soon and the contenders are:

    Audible illusions 3a
    Quicksilver line staqe
    Rogue Perseus
    Primaluna Prologue 3
    VTL 2.5
    SAS Audio labs 10A

    Previously had the Anthem pre 2l.

    Anyone compare any of these or have opinions? These are all being considered used so generally less than $1k. Your expertise is appreciated as always.

    This will go with a B&K 4420 amp. Will listen to mostly Jazz, acoustic, live sets, vocals and less hardrock and rap.

    Thanks,
    Rich

    I haven't heard any of the preamps you listed, but I could comment on my Modwright tube preamp. It is just a little over $1k used though. It was a remarkable improvement from a $300 entry level tube preamp I was using. We have the same cdp! I used to power my Dyno's with a B&K 2220 amp and I never realized how much crud the amp was adding until I upgraded.

    Yes, I'm accepting for now that it is likely a step back going from the Blue Circle amp to the B&K. The B&K may be a "temporary" piece.

    Currently leaning toward the VTL as it has remote and HT bypass and seems easily compatible.

    A couple of the others have some awkward features, specs etc.

    Still open to any thoughts.
