OK, so now I was given a deal too good to pass up on the Lehmann Black Cube from a friend. So, as it stands the system is:
McCormack DNA-225 amp
Lehmann Black Cube
Basis 1400 TT/RB300 arm/Dynavector dv-20x-h cartridge
PSB Stratus Gold i speakers
Best choices for a tubed preamp for about $800-100 used?
Prefer a remote, but not essential. I listen mostly to rock and Jazz. All input appreciated. I know I will wind up mixing and matching more as time goes by and budget allows. I am just looking for the best match with these components to get up and running now. And, yes, I know interconnects and wires are another issue! :-)
