As the title states... I want a Pre for 2 channel music only no need for multichannel and a built in RIAA Phono PreAmp would be nice but I can always use a RatShack Little Rat if need be... A tuner would be nice but again not a big deal.. I may use it with Delphi SkyFi (in the future) but the main concern is a really good gain stage with basic tone controls which won't be used hmm what else... Tubes would be nice but a good SS wouldn't be ruled out... I know $500.00 isn't alot for what I am asking, and I will consider used pieces.. I was looking at some nice used Adcom pieces on Ebay and some nice Carver Sonic Holography units. I will need this for my seperate 2channel setup to control a pair of tube monoblocks that have no gain control.
