Best phono preamp under $500?

Preferably new not used although if there is a used "champ" in my price range I guess I'd consider it.

Pass Labs Pearl, though it was never sold commercially. I occasionally see user built ones, but at slightly more than $500. Pretty much covering the parts cost. In my opinion with my higher output MC cartridge it sounded much the same as the retail Pass Ono.
