I have had 2 Art Audio preamps (VPL mk2 and VPS). They were about the same, except for some feature I didn't use. I think, like some others, that this simple pre might be just as good if not better than the Alana. Granted, I have not lived with the Alana. There is only 1 way to find out: in you own home system. However I can say this, the synergy between Art Audio gear is truly amazing. Then again, since they are so versatile many things can be done. The great feature about the Art Audio line is price. As an American company with reasonable ownership (read not greedy) it is quite the great bargain.
