I had a Cary SLP 05 with mine, and it was a little too sterile. I would try a used Atma-Sphere MP-3. I would try to run the amps balanced, for sure. Good luck!

The input impedance on the 9 V2 SE is 45K ohms and the voltage sensitivity is 2.5V (I think). Keep these numbers in mind when shopping for a tube preamp. Since your looking for an active preamp, you should be fine with the Nuforce's 2.5V sensitivity. 45K Ohms input impedance on your amps is around average, but don't get a preamp with too high an output impedance.
