$2K to spend on used SS linestage, but which?

Tank-like build, quality "guts," rich sound are critical. It will replace (because I'm a hobbyist and want to try something else) my beloved c-j Premier 14, which had those attributes in spades .
Will be used, for the time being, with a Classé DR-8 (old, but still oh so sweet) amp, and the latest cdp from either Electrocompaniet or Accuphase.
I listen equally to jazz, classical, rock, opera.
if you like your Conrad Johnson why change? Especially why solid state?
You'll never get the tube sound from an SS pre, but the Pass Aleph P is one SS pre that fits the bill for most of your other requirements.

I would highly recommend trying whatever SS pre for awhile before you sell your old fave. I've heard that CJ pre's have a very specific tube sound. It may be tough to replace.
I am at the opposite end of the spectrum. I have taken the passive route with a CJ MV-60 amp and am considering going back to a preamp, if I can find one that meets my requirement. I have been a strong proponent of passive devices, possibly to the extreme by hard wiring a very good quality stepped attenuator directly into my CD player. The sound is amazing, but I can hear some of the flatness that passive devices bring. On the other hand, the accuracy, cleanliness and musical sound is also very nice. I have been experimenting with wires and different speakers and keep coming back to my own stuff. Both my wife and I like what we are hearing, but I wonder what a really good, but very, very simple (1, maybe 2 input) pre would do. Possibly one with my stepped attenuator inserted. I will start by having Stan Warren update one of his buffered line stages for me (1/2 step, maybe even a sideways step). I agree with the above comment, try out some stuff before getting rid of your Premier 14.
Musical Fidelity A3.2cr new or A308 if you can find one used.
I just replaced my SS pre with a CJ premier 16LS and will never go back to SS...

For whatever that is worth.

If you feel the need to change, while it was not what I was looking for, the Rogue Audio 99 Magnum had a nice tube/ss sound that will be very appealing to many in the $2,000 range.
Jayme, reconsider going ss line from a CJ/DR8 position. The flat-ness of passive will remain.

Get a Supratek Chardonay line stage (see thread here). A bit over $2K, but if you are looking at Accuphase digital, this shouldn't be an issue.

You will not regret it...
Is the "flatness" of passive just a lack of additives coupled with a need for upgrading something else? I say go passive and check out Mapleshade/Insound planar cables if your looking for life.
i dont know if you are familiar with gfa 750 adcom this
is a very good preamp the retrieval of inner detail is good,
bass wise it flows with the music it blows my krell ksa
