I know this isn't a home theater question, but I'm going to be setting up a two channel stereo only system in my bedroom shortly and need suggestions on pure 2 channel pre-amps out there. No bells or whistles needed at all, just clean sound. Maximum budget is about $500. Can I get something in this range or am I out of my gord? Will consider used equipment, but I have no idea what to look for. I know about the MC-12's and Ref 30's of the world, but those are surround processors. I want strictly two channel. Thanks! Oh yeah, suggestions are recommended on good 2-channel amps to pair would be nice as well, but that I have a little more knowledge of.
