vtl tl-5.5 has this feature, but it's only their most recent production models - if yer buying used, check the serial # w/vtl - they can mod older units if ya send it to them... doug

I have an Audio Research LS 16 into a Plinius SA100 MK III amp running NHT 2.5i speakers. I don't have a lot of experience with other tube preamps, but I'm quite satisfied with the quality of sound it produces. I mainly use it with a Meridian 508.24 cd player, however I also have my satellite dish receiver, DVD and VCR hooked up to the LS 16. And, I have absolutely no complaints.
I have an LS-16 front-ended by a GenVa, and front-ending an Aragon 8008BB and Dynaudio Contour 3.0's. The preamp is very transparent and very neutral -- you won't get a "tubey," glowing coloration from this preamp, even though it uses four 6922's -- but you also won't get any added solid-state hash, grain, or grit.
